Hard to believe how many things wrong with this set. 1. Sound boxcar plays Christmas music but is so distorted it is hard to identify some of the tunes. In my opinion, it is way too loud, which creates the distortion. I sent it in to Lionel, they claimed to replace a circuit board, but when it came back, it sounds the same. 2. One of the flat car couplers would not stay closed, sent it back to Lionel and they fixed it . 3. Locomotive smoke unit doesn't work. I have many Lionel trains including other "low cost" ready to run sets, this one is defective, so, I need to send it back to Lionel.

This set has 5 cars, 3 were or are defective - C'mon Lionel, you have to do better than this!

I had this train setup around our Christmas tree during the holiday season. It was easy to setup and ran well, even with a toddler occasionally deciding to give it a little help. It is good quality and priced right for what you get comparing it to other available train sets.

My 10 year old daughter has begged me for a train set for years. This year I finally gave in. We absolutely love this train set. The quality of the components is surprising good. The train cars feel substantial, not just a pile of plastic. The track is a basic oval, but I think I will be adding more tracks and props in the future. It is a lot of fun for the whole family.

We bought this for a family Christmas decoration for years to come. The O gauge train is great with two gripes. Neither would prevent me from purchasing this set.

1. The music boxcar is a neat idea, but we rarely have it on. The sound quality is mediocre, and it does not have a volume control
2. The video I watched from Lionel shows a very visible puffing locomotive. In reality, the locomotive smoke is barely visible. We leave the smoker off (There are numerous videos/directions online on how to improve the smoke output, however).

The locomotive has great detail, and the lighted caboose is fun. This is my first use of the new O gauge track (I have used the older style tube track), and the track goes down fast and easy.

After the initial few go around's the train worked fine. Nice details.
The pictured car with trees standing in it is bull. You'd need to glue them
down to keep them upright - but no big deal for me though. We don't use the
trees inside the car. The platformed track is nice & stable.

I love this train set, but it will not puff any smoke. I have ran the engine for several hours continuously, added a few drops of smoke fluid a couple different times, and even tried running it with the smoke switch turned off in case it was wired incorrectly, but it hasn't made the first puff of smoke. I have a few vintage engines that still smoke within seconds of start up. I expected a better quality product from Lionel.

Honestly, the train works great! It is so easy to line up on the tracks that a 5 year old came over to the house the other day and was able to do it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because it is difficult to take the track apart and it is kind of loud. Maybe loud isn't the right word. I set it up on a tile floor and it makes a good bit of sound when its going at any speed. I'm sure that if it was on carpet it would be much quieter. At any rate, it is a great train that is well worth the money. And...what's wrong with a little noise any way!
