Features:

Unlike most “Christmas Trains,” though, this set is tasteful enough to be used on any O gauge railroad all year round. The train set comes with figures modeled after characters from the film. Four main characters are included as articulated figures with turning heads, movable arms, bendable waists, and jointed knees. They can be posed and placed on areas of the locomotive, tender, and passenger cars to replicate your favorite scenes from the movie.

Behind the locomotive and tender are two lighted coach cars and an observation car that features a rounded observation platform — just like in the movie! Silhouettes in the windows depict scenes from the movie.

Most of the parts are reassuringly heavy and durable. You can easily assemble the pieces of the train set, from the smooth linking of the cars, to setting up the track.  Even kids younger than eight can enjoy the Polar Express, if parents help them with it.

Lionel Polar Express G Gauge Train Set

Lionel Trains The Polar Express was modeled based on the train in the famous movie “Polar Express”. The movie was very popular among kids and families. The movie told a story of a young boy who rode the Polar Express train in an adventure to find if Santa is real. Although the movie was released more than five years ago, the Polar Express train set is still very popular these days.

The train was designed to be very similar with the train in the movie. It has two lighted coach bars, a Berkshire steam locomotive, and the observation car complete with an observation deck. The windows of the cars are covered with silhouettes that represent the characters in the film.

This is a ‘G’ scale toy plastic train with plastic track that is battery powered and is controlled by an R/C unit. It has better quality equipment and features than other G scale train set.

The engine has built-in sound that makes a steam ‘chuff’ noise synchronized to the speed of the engine. It also makes a steam brake release noise when it stops. It has a bell sound and whistle that you can control from the R/C unit. It has 3 speeds in both forward and reverse directions. The speeds seems very prototypical. The speed is also momentum controlled – the train speeds up and slows down at a measured pace just like a real train. The detail on the engine is quite good for a toy train.

All parts of the Lionel Polar Express train are easy to put together. The manufacturer provides detailed instructions on how to assemble the parts so most likely older children can put together all the parts by themselves. Most of the parts are made from durable materials so they can withstand rough treatment from your children.  For model railroaders or anyone who wants to tinker, you could add lighting to the coaches fairly easily.

You can operate this train using a 9.6 volt rechargeable battery (not included) or use six conventional C batteries (which are included) – it’s your choice! The set also comes with an easy-to-operate RC remote controller (with two AA batteries included). The train would possibly work well outdoors if you want to try creating a garden railway.

Lionel Polar Express O Gauge Remote Train Set

Fitted with the new LionChief Remote Control system by Lionel, engineers young and old have complete control over their Polar Express trains by an easy-to-use remote. You’ll feel a difference in the smooth operation of the Berkshire locomotive, and hear more realism in the locomotive sounds.

This version has full sounds, synchronized smoke output to the chuffing, and full remote control including announcements. It has a better and more practical design especially if handled by children. In addition to the famous “All Aboard!” announcement of the Polar Express conductor, you’ll also get a brand new “Tickets Please” announcement that’s only available in the LionChief remote control version of the train set.

Features:

The new Version has full sounds, synchronized smoke output to the chuffing, and full remote control including announcements.

The previous model has a quite simple metal bracket to “couple” the tender while this new model utilizes a new over/under coupler that’s major plastic with copper diodes inside. The diodes lead to send sound instructions from the engine to the tender and also synchronize the chuffing noises with the speed of the locomotive.  This die-cast metal electric Berkshire-style locomotive boasts an operating headlight, a puffing smoke unit, and a Rail Sounds RC sound system.

Even More Fun

The set includes 4 character figures from the movie, and passenger cars include interior lighting, silhouettes in the window, rounded observation platform, and decorated drumhead on observation car.

  • Smoke

The smoke on this engine performs wonderfully. Most of the time you have to warm up the old train by going at least half speed around the track for a few minutes before there was any smoke. This new engine make smoke rings immediately, and they are flawlessly timed with the chuff of the engine.

  • Tender

The tender is where all the sounds come from. In this new train the tender interfaces with the engine without any volume controls. It simply has a speaker inside with a sound screen on the bottom.

  • Three passenger cars

You still get quite high quality passenger cars with metal carriages and sturdy plastic cars. All cars have internal lights that are on when the track has power.

LionChief Remote Control

The LionChief Remote Control features forward and reverse speed control knob, buttons to activate whistle and bell sounds as well as “All aboard the Polar Express!” and “Tickets Please!” announcements. All sounds (except chuffing) are controlled by the remote buttons.

Track Layout

The set provides 8 pieces of O36 curved FasTrack, 1 piece of straight FasTrack, and 1 straight terminal section – enough track to create a 40″ x 50″ layout.

The train deals with pretty smoothly – going slower slightly on turns. It’s capable of running faster than you would want to run it. Also in the set you will receive 4 plastic movie figurines (Conductor, Engineer, Fireman, and the main character), smoke fluid, and a commemorative jingle bell as depicted in the movie.
