      My mom had gotten this little train set from Lionel free with a purchase from a certain retailer and decided to give it to my son for Christmas. My son loves anything with choo choo trains so as a two year old train lover he immediately took to this track. It would normally cost around 80 USD from the retail stores for this so the fact that the promotion was going on where she got it for free was a major steal.

      The tracks are durable first of all. Yes they are made

      of plastic but they are a durable plastic. My son uses it for the whole Christmas season on top of our coffee table and it hasn’t broken, snapped or cracked anywhere. The same goes for the trains. Even though they are made to be used as a remote control train set he rides them up and down the tracks without any problems. If you send them down the ramp and onto a curve without the remote engine attached they will fly off the track but that doesn’t matter since my son gets a kick out of it. They hold up to the falling as well. The hitches that hold the 5 cars together are strong too and are pretty easy to hitch up to each other.

      Making it move by way of the remote can be a little tricky because there is a sensor that has to see the engine. It is basic forward and backward action that my 2 year old was able to do in a few minutes of learning time but

      again we had to make sure he understood that it needed to be able to see the sensor. It makes a lot of polar express train noises and says all aboard so that added to the fun but there doesn’t seem to be a sound level control on it.

      Overall it’s a great addition to the Lionel line of trains and perfect for the Christmas season. The way we have it set up enables us to put some decorations in the middle of the coffee table so the scene really goes together perfectly for the season.
