- BestReviews
Lionel has several iconic replicas of famous trains and this one is a smaller scale of the Polar Express. It includes the engine, coal car and two passenger cars. It comes with 73 inches of track that form an oval. Track extension pieces are available to make it larger. This model train set moves around the track and is controlled by a remote.
- Techno Buffalo
Perfect gift for Christmas. 32 pieces for more creativity. The remote offers many options like moving forward, going in reverse, and blow the whistle, among others.
- Rocks for Kids

What experts didn't like

The remote keeps losing connection to the train.
- Roominate Toy
Batteries don't last long. Some owners found the "train" sound it makes to be annoying.
- BestReviews
The beeping sound produced when you turn the engine before the remote. It takes some time to get used to the tracks.
