By Paul D. Race on July 25, 2007
If you're looking for a step up from the Brio sets or other push or wind-up Thomases, this is the best one for kids over the age of 4. Thomas' eyes go back and forth as he runs, and the set includes a power supply, Sir Topham Hat and two workers, Annie and Clarabel, two railroad workers, and a nice oval of track. The track is the same track that all of Lionel's new O-gauge sets use, so you COULD start with a Thomas railroad now, add a Polar Express railroad next year, and so on.

Also, MANY, inexpensive O-scale accessories and building kits are available from companies like Bachmann (Plasticville), so a very nice railroad is possible for a fairly low sum of money. Or, use ceramic buildings from Dept. 52, Lemax, and Hawthorne Village. (The people are too big, though, except for the people that come with Hawthorne Village sets.) In other words, one set around the tree for the youngsters could grow into any of a dozen hobbies. And, let's face it, for youngsters, Thomas is probably the best introduction to trains of any kind.

This is a good entry level lionel set. It does comes with Lionel's cheapest 40 watt transformer which does not even have an accessory output however, so if you want to expand your set with lighted buildings, you will need to buy a new transformer. Overall a great product and good value for the money and the kids love it.

As of December 14th this kit is selling here on Amazon for $99.00 which is an excellent value. If you are thinking about a first train purchase for under your Christmas three and you kid(s) love Thomas you can't really go wrong with this kit. Just compare the pricing for other "starter" trains of this size.

The kit is the perfect size to go under most trees. I used all 12 tracks in a rounded square but you leave out 2 or 4 of the straight pieces if you want a smaller footprint. Set up was quick and painless. I had this running about 10 minutes after opening the box. Just snap the track together into the configuration you want, connect the two wires to the transformer, plug it in and go! My daughter screamed with excitement and that was the goal!

I should not the recommended age of 8 for this kit. The irony of course if that Thomas fans are generally under the age of eight. Therefore you have to assume you will be supervising you Thomas loving child any time he or she uses this. My daughter is only thee so it was very difficult to get her to understand she wasn't supposed to physically handle the moving train. That being said its worth the extra attention needed. Even if this is only a holiday arrangement I feel it was worth the price. It she grows into a train enthusiast so much the better!

Bottom line is this kit is a very good deal at this price. If you are a hard core train person you are obviously not the target audience for this set! For a beginner hoping to introduce you child to train this kit is just the ticket.

This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my son, but I am afraid it did not make the cut. Here is why:

The good:
- Excellent quality figures, especially Sir Topham Hat
- Good quality FasTrack tracks and very good layout included
- Excellent look/feel of Annie and Clarabel - they seem like they would last forever, plus they have removal tops so that kids can put thinks inside

The not so good:
- Thomas felt "dinky" to say the least. We are used to reliable and strong Lionel engines, but this one was flimsy, and seemed very top heavy. The sounds out of Thomas were not at all what you might expect (i.e. similar whistle as from the show) and the connectors used between Thomas and the cars did not seem compatible with other Lionel sets, although I did not try that
- The transformer that comes along is of the low wattage variety, so if you expect to use it with other Lionel engines, keep in mind that only those with very low power requirements will work
- The moving eyes were not what I expected. Thomas looks strange going around in a plasticky-sounding engine with his eyes clickety-clack

So, back it goes, and the Lionel Polar Express one comes back (much, much better indeed).

Santa Claus put this train set together in the living room floor Christmas Eve. This is the only thing my son wanted for Christmas. When the morning came we turned it on to wake the kids....nothing happened. Now having to send this train back at my expense (time and money). Local hobbie shops won't even take them back. Talk about a disapointment! Try explaining to your son why Santa would make a train that doesn't work. It'll take some time for me to make up for this one. Never again Lionel!!!!!!!!!!!

Compared to other entry level lionel sets, this is not a good buy -- and that is too bad since Thomas is so popular. Face plate was busted and had to order another from Lionel. Shipped with two of the same passenger cars, so had to send back a car before they would send another. The couplers are flimsy and the cars seperate often. My kido has more fun with real cheap plastic Lionel passenger cars which come with internal lights and passenger profiles in the windows. No bell on the engine, not even a light!..... Not sure why Lionel doesn't up the quality to their normal starter set level, I would certainly pay the extra cost. Lionel cut too many corners on this one.
