From the Manufacturer

Lead by a powerful 0-8-0 locomotive with realistic steam chuffing sounds and puffs smoke, the New York Central Flyer charges down the mainline while a helicopter is prepared for flight route. This exciting train set comes complete with an eye catching string of freight cars, a generous fastrack oval, and a powerful CW-80 transformer. The set includes: 0-8-0 steam locomotive and tender, boxcar, gondola with canisters, helicopter launch car, work cabosse, three straight fastrack track sections, eight curved 0-36 fastrack track sections, a fastrack terminal section, a fastrack uncoupling section, CW-80 transformer, smoke fluid. Please follow the below instructions to use this item: 1.) Make sure the smoke on/off switch is in the “on” position. 2.) Make sure 5-7 drops of smoke fluid were added to the smoke stack. 3.) Make sure to blow down the stack to remove and any meniscus that may have formed around the top opening of the smoke unit. 4.) The train must be operated at 2/3 to full throttle for the smoke element to get warm enough to convert the fluid into vapor and have smoke ejected from the smoke stack. The train will NOT smoke running at low speeds.

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.

This set, while a little more than the other sets when I bought it (today $65 cheaper.. grr), has lived up to expectations. It has a few little extras that the other sets don't include: a decoupling section, action car (helicopter release) and instead of 4 10" straights it has 3, and the decoupling section is comprised of the 5" decoupler and another 5" section. This leaves you open for more layout opportunities than just the plain 8 O36 turns and 4 10" straights.. with just three other pieces (a 5", a 4-1/2" and a 1-3/4" straight) I created a nice triangular track that worked well in the corner I put my tree in.

While not the gold standard of days gone by, the current crop of Lionel trains can be a decent entry into the world of model trains. Maybe someday the manufacturing will come back home to the USA.

I've been into Lionel Trains for decades: Buying, running, and repairing them. I haven't purchased a new set in ages and bought this for our Grandson. The cars are as detailed as the "typical" Lionel cars from the 50's and 60's. The helicopter and it's car are also just like they were "in the golden days." All of the cars (except the work caboose) even have sprung trucks. The engine and tender are more detailed and have nicer features than similar locomotives, again, from the 50's and 60's, "in this price range." The Fastrack works well but is noisier than the old track. The transformer is designed well and the bell and whistle buttons work as they should.

The reason I gave it 3 stars is because the engine binds as it moves. It is noticeable on curves and is very noticeable when running it slow. The engine will move a few inches, then slow, move a few inches, then slow. If you run it real slow the engine will stop.

As I said I've repaired many a Lionel train so I troubleshot why it was doing this. The problem is the same problem that many Lionel's had in the past. The front wheels have a cam, that move a lever, that raises and lowers a piston in the smoke unit. That's what gives you the puffs of smoke. On this engine, the piston was bottoming-out in the smoke unit. The lever was trying to push the piston up further, but it couldn't, so the cam had resistance on it and the engine slowed down everytime the cam rolled around to the "up" position. I opened the engine up, re-bent the smoke lever so the piston didn't bottom-out, and the engine rolls fine. The problem is, most people won't want to do this.

Other than that issue, and now that I've fixed it, I am very happy with the set.

I have had a Lionel since I was 5. I am now 40 and bought this train for my 5 year old for Christmas this year. I got the train out one week before the big day to make sure nothing was broken and the train worked properly. The smoke didn't work, the sounds didn't start until the train was well underway, and the overall quality was very poor. I paid extra for the "Rail Sounds", which are such poor quality that I couldn't understand the words.

This is very disheartening. I am having a hard time putting my dissapointment into words. At least my 35 year old Wabash Cannonball still works like new.

It is a fantastic train set. Well made and seemingly rugged. The quality is very high. Make sure the smoke switch on the engine is turned off before you run the train. The element got burned out before oil was put in it. It was discovered too late that the engine was delivered with the switch turned on.
