This was Lego's first engine and car for the new Power Function's (PF) train system. PF motors and infrared control devices are now common across a number of Lego product lines (e.g., Creator and Technic). If you have the old 9 volt system (which many Lego users were sorry to see discontinued) you can attempt a modification and place an old motor unit on this new train (others are doing this to varying degrees of elegance); axle width has not changed. If you have either of the RC train sets (7897 and 7898, which were brought out after 9 volt in 2006), those units have their own motor and infrared units (i.e., non-PF). PF and RC use the exact same track.
What do you need to run this train? This set does not come with any track or any of the motors or infrared receivers or control units. It track is not available at Amazon, check at Lego. The PF units are usually a little more difficult to source and the best selection is typically directly from Lego. The PF units required for this train are: 8882 (1 XL motor), 8884 (IR receiver), 8878 (battery), 8879 (remote control), 8887 (transformer for the battery). You can also add a light (8870). The cost of these accessories is usually more than the Emerald Night set itself. Also, the PF Motor Set #8293 is NOT designed for the Emerald Night; 8293 is designed to power a number of Technic sets.
Comments on the set: It is not much of a stretch to say that this is the most finely rendered steam engine that Lego has ever offered for sale.Read more ›
It remains to be seen if LEGO's Power Functions (PF) electrical system is a winner or not, but it's now the only option LEGO provides to power this train, so there's not much to debate. It is nice to have wireless control and non-electrified tracks, and the rechargable battery life is quite respectable. On the negative side, there are very obvious digital "steps" in the speed control, rather than a smooth curve from "stop" to "maximum speed". Care is also needed when assembling the model to ensure that the wheel linkages and gear system do not bind and prevent smooth running. As other reviewers have already stated, the electrical parts and track that go along with this set are NOT included, but are needed to really finish this set off. So expect to spend another $100 or so to have something you/your child can run around the Christmas tree or playroom; believe me, they(you)'ll want to.
Anyway, I think the other reviewers here have covered all the specific technical details in sufficient detail. You can get a motor to replace the engine compartment so that the train will actually run on (lego brand) tracks. But building the included engine unit is a lot of fun -- various interlocking gears and axles which were very interesting for my 5 year old to put together (with help) and see in operation.
Lego sets of this size and complexity offer a lot of rewards for the dedicated builder, because there is a lot of inner detail which is not visible from the outside that you are putting together during the building process.
