Now, you can own the Polar Express train featured in both the best-selling book and the hit movie. Painstakingly designed to be true to the original, this exclusive Lionel train set features a die-cast metal Berkshire steam locomotive with a larger pilot, a headlight lens cap, and a unique whistle.
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.
