5.0 out of 5 stars Lionel New York Central Flyer 6-30200, September 7, 2012

This review is from: Lionel New York Central Flyer Train Set - O-Gauge (Toy)
Initially I wanted to buy an HO model, but later on decided to go with an O model instead since I also want my older son (who's 9) to handle the set. Like many other Lionel sets, the engine feels very heavy and solid. It has a LED light, a smoke stack (more fun for the kids), a non-moving/non-working bell, 2 thin metal (I think) handrails running along the sides, a working coupler in the front, 2 driver figures, and best of all, moving rods and gears which are fun to watch when the train is moving.

Other nice features:
- Rail Sounds: The sounds are very clear and great. I didn't want to get a set with sounds at first, but then I didn't want my kids to nag why the bell button is not working. You can adjust the volume or turn it off completely. Now I always turn on the bell when the train is moving.
- CW-80 transformer: Good to have if more tracks are added (which I did). It has a pair of extra terminals to power your future add-ons.
- Lighted Caboose.
- Uncoupling section with control button: You can use this to launch the included plastic helicopter. This can draw power from the tracks. The manual shows how to hook up the wires but it's confusing. Basically, you just connect the black wire to the negative terminal, and the white wire to an adjacent track's positive terminal which should be under the middle rail.

The smoke unit didn't actually work at first for me, so the Loco-Boose repair shop sold me some Marklin smoke oil which works nicely. Still I only see smokes only when I crank the power all the way up which is a bit of a let down since I want to see smokes at a much lower speed. Oh well. Another thing is the train is very noisy when moving on the fastracks.

In short, my kids enjoy it and I'm very happy with the set.
