I already had standard track so this works great for me . However anyone starting a new set might want the newer trpe of snap lock track. All the cars look good and work just fine. The kids hooked up 10 cars and it pulls then all just fine.
The description was wrong it does not contain the following '3 trackside shanties building kits, 12 utility poles, 19 railroad signs, tunnel support with printed mountain paper'.
During operation, even at maximum speed, the train doesn't de-rail unless there is debris on the track.
As has been said elsewhere, the cars that come with it appear to be cheaply made and the wheels come off too easily. They are not hard to put back on.
The locomotive is strong, although it only has four drive wheels.
You need to be aware that the Power-loc track does not work with the track enclosed without using an adapter, even though Amazon is apparently not aware of this as they are trying to sell it to extend the layout on the page with the train. The train has conventional HO track, (I believe code 100). After I got the track laid so that the rails were smooth, the train was able to stay on the oval track that came with it at full speed forward and about 3/4 speed backwards (I didn't try full speed backwards).
If you are wanting a train for young children, the cars that come with it would not keep their wheels for long.
If you want a starter set, especially if you plan on using conventional track, then this may be a good start.

I purchased this for my son for Christmas. He enjoyed it but it doesn't seem to stay on the tracks as well as I expected it to.Published on January 10, 2014 by Megan
This train arrived far too late for my intended purpose. Even worse it is very difficult to set up and the train will NOT stay on the track. I would not suggest this train. Read morePublished on January 7, 2014 by Randy A. Fachinger
Just a real pain. Wires for power hook so tiny I used my own. Track connection very frustrating. Car hook up a joke. Read morePublished on January 7, 2014 by gary cox
