But I wasn't surprised at all because all of us in family love train sets. Especially Christmas train sets! And this one we still don't have. It is Ready-to-Play set (a larger scale) and includes remote control, battery powered locomotive and tender, 24 curved and 8 straight tracks, gondola with crate load and center cupola caboose.
As I read we would need to buy 3 AAA batteries for the remote controller and 6 C batteries for the engine because they are not included.
I can already imagine my nephew playing with it under the Christmas tree! And I am sure he won't be alone! Although it's a large scale, this train set is perfect fun for all generations with it's bell and whistle sounds!
Among all the other toys, train sets are one of my favourites. Especially during the Holiday Season. Under my Marco's Christmas tree, this year there would be new North Pole Central Christmas Train Set!
