Super fun Thomas & Friends Train Set
This is a great train set for any Thomas the Train enthusiast. The Lionel Thomas & Friends Read-to-Play set features the classic Thomas battery-powered locomotive & his passenger car friends Annie & Clarabel. The set includes 32 individual pieces of track, 24 curved & 8 straight. Track assembly is relatively simple; however, an adult should supervise track assembly. There is enough track to create a circle, an oval or a rectangular layout. The train control is easy to operate and is hand held; it is well detailed for easy operation. Additionally, the set includes three interchangeable Thomas faces for the engine; the faces work perfectly with Thomas’ moving eyes and realistic sounds effects. My son and I had a blast running this train. He loved the ease of the control. This is a Lionel great train set that is built to last with the perfect price point. This product has been provided by Lionel free of charge so I could experience it; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own.
Kids will love it!
Fun little train, got to play with it today. The multiple faces are a really neat addition. Makes plenty of different noises and whistles, my son is going to love it. The engine runs smooth and is very responsive to the remote. I wish the track worked with the older track I have to make it even bigger but there's additional track you can buy. It makes a plenty big loop with what is included though. The only thing I can say as a guy who has played with trains all his life is the chuffing sound doesn't synch up well at all with wheel speed, but again, the kids will have a blast. As with most things Lionel, it feels like a good quality and should last a long time. The product has been provided by Lionel free of charge so I could experience it; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own.
A Great Train Set for Children
This Ready-to-Play set is more kid friendly than the O-gauge trains and tracks that I grew up with. My 6-year old was able to set up the track by himself and all my kids love the three faces for Thomas. The set seems sturdy and I like not having to plug it into the wall like my other train sets: this train runs on six C-cell batteries. Thomas has been pulling Annie and Clarabel for several hours and the batteries haven't died yet. My only real complaint about this train set is the noise: if Thomas is turned on, he is making noises that I assume are to be Thomas' pistons-pumping. My kids love the push-button sound effects, but I have been tempted to take Thomas apart and disable his speaker. My kids love the set and I like having a good-quality train that is more kid friendly. This train will be around our tree this Christmas season. The product has been provided by Lionel free of charge so I could experience it; however, the thoughts and opinions are all my own.
LIONEL THOMAS AND FRIENDS READY TO PLAY REVIEW.
by Robert C
Anyone looking for the perfect way to get your youngsters interested in model railroading needs to look no further than this terrific set. The large G- scale Thomas is well designed and beautifully painted. The roofs of all three items lift off easily, so one can place figures inside to give them a ride around the layout. You have to supply your own set of 6 C batteries.
One downside is that the set is not compatible with other G gauge track. In comparing this set to the O scale Thomas set, this one is obviously designed as a toy rather than a model train, but the design is appealing and the locomotive response to the remote control is better than the O scale version.
