Train Makes Great Addition To Tree!!
This item makes a great decoration for any tree or a gift for a young child. The only imperfection is you have to be careful when laying the tracks because they break easily. Other than that I can't say anything bad about the train. -
Simply Duh Best,
I got this as a gift and I love it! It is under the tree. I am wondering where I could get more curved track. The train seems to hang up on the curves. I think it just needs one more at each end. -
so much better than i thought
i was so pleased with this train when i received it. it was for my daughter to use under her tree, but i wasn't sure she'd like it. she did!!! it is sooo cute under the tree, sounds great and the smoke is an unexpected touch. the kids love to turn it on and watch it round the tree! i am so thrilled with it! -
was delivered on time and i tracted it i would highly recormend this train was a little smaller than i thought but i just love it works great asemble was easy and it goes fast too it showed green but i got red and like the red better for xmas train under my tree always wanted one had to wait till all kids were grown lol ithinkim in my second childhood -

New Orleans, La
Traditional Train Set
I assembled the track under my Christmas Tree and loaded in the batteries, all very simple to do.
I used only the curved track to make a perfect circle around my Christmas Tree, there are also straight pieces to extend it if you want.
Very impressive it makes train sounds whistles and smokes like a real train.
It is a great looking Holiday Train. -
I would and will buy this product again!
Bought as a gift and ended up putting it around the Christmas tree. Now everyone wants one! -
Great product for the price.
I bought this for my niece and her daughters. They love it. She placed it on the floor around the Christmas tree. It added a wonderful element to the decorated tree. She also wanted to use it with her village display so she had to choose. I will get her another one next year so she can use it in both places. -

Great Christmas Item!!!
A train under the Christmas tree is a tradition that goes way way back,and It is good to follow tradition and continue the process.This train set is reasonably priced and appears to fit the scenario.Kudos to you for presenting a reasonably priced item and enabling the younger generation to work their way to a tradition of days gone by!!! -
This is going to look sooooo cute under our Christmas tree. We wanted "bells and whistles" and that's what we got. We love it! -

My grandson loves this train, he says it's better than his passenger train at home. It's loud and fast, but after a while the "smoke" seems to be intermittent, but that's O.K. Nice price too! -
This product is highly recommended
This product was an xmas gift....and was very well received -
Better than expexcted!
I have been looking for an under the tree train forever and WOW was I ever impressed with the look and performance of this train. It has great detail and looks like a real train. So pleased with this purchase. -

Great for the price
I bought this product as a table display for a Party with a Train theme, I haven't used it yet, but When I received it, I was very impressed with the size and the quality of the product. I am very satisfied. -
I love my train, my grandkids loved it also,they put it together for me. It loooks great going around the tree.
My grandson liked it so well that I ordered another one for him for christmas. We were very surprise that the smoke worked so good. -
We are on a tight budget this Holiday season...but, we really wanted a Holiday Train to put around our Christmas tree this year for our Granddaughters first Christmas. This train is amazing for the price. More than we expected!It is made of light plastic...bigger than we thought, and the light, smoke and sounds work great! Thank You! -
Grandparents 1st Christmas,
Better than expected
Bought for my Grandson for Christmas and he loved it. Buy quite a lot from Collections etc. everything that I have bought has been really nice. -
Perfect, just what I was looking for!
THis will be used every year around the Christmas Tree for the grandchildren. -
Worth every penny
I used this train around the Christmas tree, I couldn't believe it. It is so real. I am going to buy more as gifts. -
No problems putting together if done carefully and by following directions-looks great on dining room table-works great except no smoke comes from stack-great value for 22 bucks -
port townsend WA
I was extremely pleased.
When my kids were small, I bought a train to go under the Christmas tree. It was a wonderful experience. Now that I have grand children, I wanted them to experience our same joy. I shopped for a train in stores & online. I was extremely pleased with the train I received from your company, it was better than expected. My grands LOVED it!! -
Smokin Train Set
I purchased for my Grandson (who is 19) and we both are very pleased. He had said he wanted a train to run around his Christmas tree and this one has been perfect for him. It's old time design and realistic smoke coming out the stack is just great. I would reccommend it to anyone. Amazon and others have the same one but is of course more money. -
we have it set up under our tree. The grandchildren love it. -
Awesome Choo Choo!
Comes in a syrofoam package for easy and safe storage.
loud train noises
runs quite fast -
SLC, Utah Choo Choo!
Great under a X-mas tree -
I would buy this product again
I purchased this train set to put around the Christmas tree then surprise my nephew with the news that it was his Christmas present. I can't wait, I know he will love it. -
Fort Smith Arkansas
Great train for the Christmas tree
I purchased this train set to circle around the base of the Christmas tree. It is easy to assemble, smoke comes out of the train engine, and it has a cute whistle. It is made of plastic so it is not a toy for a very young child but my 9 year grandson was careful and enjoyed playing with it. It definitely will be around the tree this Christmas. -
My grandchildren love trains and when I saw this one you were offering in your catelog I though It was a great price and I would purchase it for the children. From the moment we took it out of the box and set it up, they were delighted with its operation, train sounds, tract... all that it offered. Excellent purchase. -
I couldn't believe my eyes
I was expecting a small toy when I ordered the train. When I opened the box I was so amazed to see a full sized authentic looking, antique train set. My nephew will get many happy hours of fun with the train. Thank you. -

South Amboy, NJ
Great for the holidays!
This traditional train looked great under the Christmas tree this year. It puffs smoke and has a loud whistle. It added pleasure and memories of past Christmases. I would definitely recommend this product. -
Is a great little train, very entertaining. Surprised it works so well.
Wish I can turn the sound off or at least decrease the volume. Gets annoying after few minutes.
Other wise, very pleasing. -
Its a nice train overall, my kids loved it. -
Happy mother of 3,

Darlingly Old Fashioned
It is so cute the way it whistles and blows smoke. I have to agree with another review its hard to keep the wheel on the track, but it's too cool to let it still not get 5 points. -
Sorry I can't rate this one cause I haven't
I am probably going to send it to a grand child for their Christmas, so don't want to mess up the packaging to try it out. -
El Paso, TX
Perfect product -
this train set is amazing..it whistles and smoke comes out..Yes it kept coming off the tracks,but you have to make sure the track are attached properly. I love my train set. thank you for yet another great affordable product. -
Couldn't believe the price
This is a Christmas present for my grandson and know he will love it. I have been shopping around for train sets but they were all too expensive. This one just fell into my lap and now have one nice gift out of the way. -

Rego Park, NY
Adorable little train!
I actually bought this for my grandson to see around the Xmas tree when he comes to Mimi's house but then decided I liked it so now I have to order another one. It's really adorable and doesn't look cheap considering the great price. I bought a snow blanket to go around the tree base and made a little scene underneath the tree. He's gonna love it! -
Chug A Lug, Here comes your train!!!
Gave my 21 year old Grandson, one last year for Christmas. It has always, loved trains and runs it around, his Christmas Tree. I love it so, I bought us one this year, to use in our Holiday DÃ©cor. It is too, a great toy idea. Works great and can be used by kids easily, because of it's larger size. What a great bargain, for this one. Thanks. -
I Love this train!!!!!!
This train is a must have! I order a Bachmann Train and paid $200 for it. It was 3 ½ in high and did not make any sounds. I was very unhappy. I shipped it back ASAP! I ordered this train from Collection Etc. And Love it, for the price I paid. It was a great choice…. I will order this item again.. -
My Grandson-in-law has always wanted a train to put around his Christmas tree. This one was perfect; not too expensive and works great (I tested it before giving it to him)...it even smokes! Although there is no speed control and it would be nice to be able to start it remotely without having to hold on to it and flip the switch, for the price it is awesome! -
The Missouri Ozarks
traditional train set
first ordered train 3 years ago to go around my xmas tree.couldn't keep train from 3 year old grandson. finally gave it to him and now have ordered another for the tree. very attractive and we all love it. -
Grandson wanted Train
Grandson wanted train that made noise for Christmas. Once he got it and put it together and played with it. Grandma was informed he was having the best Christmas ever. He is only three. -
Very sturdy and works very well. -
Argyle New York
This a Christmas gift.
Have been looking for a train to go around my friends Christmas tree. This is just what I was looking for. -
nebraska city ne
The train is set up under the Christmas tree. It really makes noise and makes smoke. Cute! -
This was better than I expected
Just love it! I read some of the negative comments before I ordered it and decided they had simply gotten a lemon - or they just didn't know how to use it. I haven't ordered anything from Collections yet that I wasn't 100% satisfied with! Keep up the good work. -
Great Train Set for the price!
I have used this for Christmas for the last three years. It's great for the price. I HOPE they will continue this Train Set - I need more tracks because I broke one track and need it replaced. It's unbelievably perfect for our needs and really spices up the holiday decor. -
Great company, great delivery and great prices. Thank You so much -
Granada Hills CA
It is great thank you
It is great I use it around my little town I made. -
Awesome, the train works and the steam work
I'm surprise this item didn't cost more. I purchased the train for myself to go around my Christmas tree. My husband was more excited about the train than I was.
Missouri City, Tx
This was very nice
I liked the train but I could not turn off the sound and it played continuously and was loud..No on /off button for sound.otherwise great. -
it works great, sounds like the real thing
it is beautifully made. use it on my dining room table with scenery and buildings surrounding it. -
I would buy from here again
Was a lot large then I could use .. but we gave it to "Toys for Tots .. so will be much loved I'm sure -
Deming, New Mexico
Purchased for our grandson for Christmas....it was a Big Hit!!!!!! -
Very nice for the price! I like that it is battery-run. It will run anywhere. No cords to trip over. If you have kids that want to run the train all the time, you might think twice about it's being battery powered, but it's just right for us. We put it around the Christmas tree. Full size toy engine with three cars--just like more expensive train sets. Plain track that assembles oval or round. The whistle is a little loud, cute puffs of smoke from the smoke stack. Clever--the coal car holds the batteries! -
love it. cute train -
This year I am going to put this train under my tree for the grandchildren to enjoy and me tooo! -
tVery nice little train
this was a Christmas gift for a grandson and he loves it. It is so pretty I would like to set one up under our own Christmas tree. -
Check the train cars for rubber bands
After reading the reviews I still bought this train. I thought even if it didn't work, it would look cute under the tree. It did not stay on the tracks at 1st, after it "crashed" a few times I discovered rubber bands on each car to keep them from not turning. Took the rubber bands off & wa la it works great. It really is a cute train set. Just disappointed in plastic tracks. Mine is working just fine now, check your cars for rubber bands. -
Grandkids loved it!
This is the second one I have purchased. Great for the price! -

Looks beautiful under the tree
Got this last week and set up immediately in anticipation for the tree's arrival and it looks quite nice by itself but now after putting up the tree, it looks GREAT. I love it! -
The sounds and everything about this train is great but most of all my grandson loves it!!! -

Traaditional Train Set
I am a train guy. This particular set reminds me of the earliest train set I had - about 64 years ago. the price is exceptional. I am very happy with this train set. -
Dr. B or poppa.,
One fast train!
I have my train under my Christmas tree. I bought it so my grandsons would get excited when they see it... they both LOVE trains. The sounds, lights and smoke are AWESOME, but I wish it ran a bit slower. THe back cars have no weight and get thrown from the tracks. -
North Platte, NE
The Perfect Christmas decoration
I have tried to purchase this item often only to find it was always sold out. So I was very happy to finally add it to my Christmas treasures. A great value. Perfect in any childs room too. -
This is a great first train set for a child. But I wish you could get more track, and maybe some buildings and people to go with it. -
Was very cute and better than I expected
Was really surprised but it was pretty nice for the price. It was alittle loud when turned on because you cannot control the volume but was a good buy overall. I put it around the bottom of my Christmas tree. -
this product didn"t work, the second one did.
they let me keep the first one and sent out another one that did work. Thanks! -
Great Buy! -
very loud and never smoked, but it was just what we expected and the grandkids loved it! Lots of track, too. -
nephews dream come true!
although I had to reinforce the couplings, the look on my nephews face was priceless. He loves trains, so this was a gift he had to have even though he's only four years old.He cherishes this train set and I cant wait for another to add to his collection of train themed toys. -
Bklyn. New York
nice choo choo
very well decorated -
nice christmas decorative piece -
new york,new york
I am glad I got this.
Very attractive! Once I figured out that you have to hold tight to the train to turn it on and then let go, I was very satisfied. Before I figured that out, it would not stay on the track when I started it. I do wish there was a way to not have the sound because it is so loud. I am going to put it on my table and surround it with my village. Very nice for the price but not one for little children to touch. -
The engine jumps when starting. Would like to see a volume control on the coal car because the sound is to loud.The train set was practically ready to go when I opened the package,I laid the tracks and it was very easy to get started.The design is really excelent well worth the price. -
New Castle, Delaware
Great item for the price.
It will be on display and used for general supervised play during and after Christmas at Grandma's house. Because the track is delicate, it will have been put together and in place, so that all that needs handling are the engine and cars. ( This being based on last year's experience with the first set ordered.) -
It is pretty good.
Generally good, could be improved in detail area. Also, sometimes it comes out of rails, but not normally. -
great buy for the money
Bought this for my 7 year old Grandson and his Dad to enjoy under the Christmas tree. He loves the smoking stack. -
For the price - Excellent!!!
We put the track around our Christmas tree with a simple country village scene and it is beautiful. Our two year old grandson loves it. -
Really nice train set for the price
This is a gift for my grandson. He hasn't seen it yet but I know he will love it. It's much nicer than I expected, for the price. -
Daytona Beach, FL
What a cute little train set
This train is currently being used to add to my holiday "ambiance" but mainly as entertainment for my 2 little boys (2 yrs old and 11 month old) I was amazed... they can watch the train go around the track for quite a while.
This train can be very testy as the main engine is where the on/off switch and the powered wheels are located so when you try to turn it on, it takes off quicky which causes it to get off track. But once I managed to get it back on track, it went around and around with no problems. In the picture, you will see, my train's engine is red. (which I like more than the green one displayed) I am only using the curved tracks so it would fit on my dining room table but there are straight tracks in the box. after reading the other reviews, I made sure I was very careful while putting the tracks together but they clicked together fine.
The smoke was very faint (their picture is very over exaggerated on the smoke) but the red light is really bright. The sounds are very neat and loud. The train sounds happen the entire time the train is turned on. My 2 yr old screams "All 'board!" after every train whistle sound. For the cost and the enjoyment my kids are having, I can't be more pleased. -
Somewhere in Alabama
Under the christmas tree -
Very nice for the price.
Very nice looking for the price. -
Great Choo Choo
For the price, I was expecting something on the flimsy side...but I was pleasantly surprised. The train is solid and looks great. The only negative thing I can say is that it is a little difficult to allign the train with the tracks. -
Grand Prairie, TX
Great for kids, easy for kids to use
Great for younger kids. Safe and easy to use -

Fort Atkinson, Wi.
THE TRAIN WAS PUT INTO SANTA;S WORKSHOP BUT COULDN'T GET THE SMOKE TO COME OUT THE STACK,OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS VERY NICE -
Bought one last year, so I now have two. Be careful of the tracks, as they break easy. My son glued them, so they worked, but fragile to put together and take apart -
Great train for the price.
Good doing business - pleased with quality. -
I ordered this last year and it went well under the tree. I ordered another one this year. Just have to be careful of the tracks -
I am very please with the train set. Great
A gift for three grands. -
It is very attractive. For the money it is a great buy. If you get all cars on the train though the last cars will not stay on the track most of the time. Very nice and I love it though!! -
Great Train Set
We used this around the Christmas tree and it was a great hit with the kids and adult kids! Several who are train extraordinaire loved the set and were impressed. The smoke from the engineer was very cool and unexpected!! -
I really can't make a comment about it. I bough this for under the tree, but didn't get to use it this year. From looking at it so far it seem to be ok. Did notices there wasn't enough tracks to make a big circle. I will have to try to fine some more. That is why I only gave it a 4 star. -
This was a gift for my 8-year-old grandson who loves it. -
My grandson loves it, he is almost 2, but we are careful because the train cars are delicate. -
Granite Quarry, NC
I was delighted to see the train when I opened the box. It looks well made and easy to startvplsyingvwith. -
Huntington Beach, ca
Train is fun (:
I like it very much, I keep it on my Home Ofc. floor, when my grandson comes over he could amuse him self with it. I like the different features it has all the sounds that a train makes & the smoke that puffs out of it's smoke stacks.
So cute (: -
I would recommend
Cute and well made for the price but goes a little fast and has trouble staying on the track. A remote control would be helpful. -
Big Guy Train
I got this product because it reminded me of my Grandfathers train which we bring out every christmas.My 3 year old grandson has trains , but calls poppy's train the big guy.
The colors are brilliant, the track is easy to assemble and the sounds are wonderful. to a 3 year old this will be special.For many years to come, till I give him poppy's train. -
All things are great about it -
I recommend purchase 0f train set.
Was a gift for my great grand children -
Mac for McGibbons,
Port St Lucie, Fla
My grandsons were delighted!
Our grandsons love this train. It was easy to assemble and was operational in 5 minutes. Because it is made of plastic rather than steel, several smaller part did break off but this was due to rough play by a 3 and 6 year old boys - totally understandable!
We were please with this purchase and would recommend it for any grandparents with grandchildren who are fascinated by trains. -
The DC 2 See,
Sioux Falls, SD
Not bad for the price
The train and cars are pretty stout. The whistle is loud, but my grandson loved it. I did not like how flimsy the tracks were; it was difficult to line the train and cars on the track and have them stay on. I might go to the local hobby store and see if I can find some more durable tracks for the train. Overall, this is a good deal considering what I paid for it - the look on my 2 year old grandson's face on Christmas seeing the train go around the tree was priceless. -
Good overall "first train set" for young
Good overall 1st train set for young kids, however, tracks could and should be more durable, since it is targeted toward young kids! -
Liked it so much ordered another one.
Package delivered in a reasonable timeframe. Packed in foam, very protective of the product. -
Have always wanted a train under the tree, and here it is. With the size it won't get lost under the tree. Excited to use. -
Post Falls, Idaho
Really cute, good value for the price
I was really surprised by this purchase, a much better value than I expected. The train is a nice size, easy to assemble and very detailed. My reason for the purchase was to go around my Christmas tree or make a winter scene. It will fit the bill for sure. The train functions are adorable, the lights, sounds and smoke are so fun. Although I probably would not use this train as a toy for a child, because the set is not super sturdy. -
Christmas Train Makes a Big Hit
I placed this train on a table top with a tree in the middle and a snow display. It truly is the talk of my decorations this year. The only thing I would change is the sound. I would like to turn off the whistle when not needed. It is kind of loud. -
Great affordable train set
We wanted a train to put under the Christmas tree, but didn't want to spend a lot. This was perfect. Looks very nice, and the kids love it. The sound effects are rather loud when it runs, but that is kind of fun. I wish there was an on/off switch for the sound, so you could run it without the noise. But for the price, that is not a big problem. -
Not Too Old To Get A Train Set
[...] great deals. Will be doing a lot more shopping with this company. -
N. Fort Myers, Florida
Very nice train set.
We put this train around our Christmas tree - people who come to our Christmas party love it. -

Traditional Train Set never out of Style
Originally bought for a 'White Elephant' gift for a party this train set was a big hit! Most of the men and some of the women present all wanted to take this one home and some didn't even have children of their own! -
Good product for the price
This is a good train for Grandma's house. The first one we ordered didn't work, but Collections sent a replacement out immediately. Very good customer service. -
My husband loves trains and he placed it in our enclosed porch for Christmas. We were disappointed that a track was broken but decided not to go through the hassle of sending it back. -
Very cool train
This will look great around our Christmas tree. -
Can't wait to set this train up around the Christmas tree. -
Bought this item for my Mother who has wanted a steam train around her Christmas tree for years.... She loves it.... -
i would buy this product again
I am happy with the train and I would order it again. its very nice looking. the wheels are a little flimsy but once you get it on the track its ok. I had to omit one of the cars because the engine could not pull all the cars around the track that i had in a circle going around the tree. It would constantly jump the track and you could tell it was having problems. It works great with 3 cars though! -
very surprised with this purchase
very satisfied with the entire order -
Grants Pass Oregon
grandkids were excited!
Grand kids were excited. At 6 & 3 they set it up with minor direction and are running it well. So far so good. Longer term reliability remains to be seen but attractive design will help it be a play toy for years at minimal cost. -
Great cute set
Great inexpensive train set. Cute with steam coming from front engine. Nice sound. Derails often if not set on tracks correctly. Great buy! -
Bought for work Xmas display under tree -
good for the money
Train keeps coming off track -
Santa's Bargain Hunter,
Perfect gift for my nephews!
I gave a train set to my sister's kids and my brother's kids. They LOVED it! I bought the same one last year and these 4 year olds begged to play with it everytime they came over so I made sure they had their own. -
Lots of fun!
We read prior reviews so knew the disadvantages. However, the price was great. The train set is such fun that we bought another set for more track. We taped the speaker to muffle the loudness a little. We used rubber bands to secure the track pieces in alignment. We enjoy this train set so much, we left it in place even after packing all our other Christmas decorations away. It just makes us smile. -
Great quality product for the price!
Track was a little flimsy, but overall good product when your are on a budget. -
Put it around the Christmas tree. -

Great first train set!
This is a great "first time" train set for younger children. Our nephew is 3 and put it together almost by himself - little assistance. His (& our) only complaint was the relatively short track. My sister had him put it together around their tree and it looked & worked very well. Truely a great first train!! -
Loved the train!
This train was a hit with my grandchildren when I had it running under the Christmas tree! Although it is a bit flimsy, it is perfect for the holiday season. Should last 2-3 years for this purpose. -
It's NEVER run off the track...awesome
This is amazing for the price. Handle with care, but the grandkids LOVE to watch the smoke, listen to the sounds, and follow the train 'round and round. I bought TWO sets just to have extra tracks. Even with brand new batteries, we've never had the train run off the tracks UNLESS the wheels were not properly aligned before it took off. Every Christmas tree deserves to have this train set to complement it. -
good things come in small packages
the train circles around my Christmas tree. its a great conversation piece and everyone loves it even my older kids. the only downside to the product is that when you are using the on-off switch, one touch could push the train off its tracks and it takes time to align the train with the tracks so it can get moving again. -
julie who loves decorating,
Better than expected!
Set up on Thanksgiving day and 2 yr old loved it. Adults didn't care for the sounds but he did. After several hours the track broke in one place but I ordered another complete set to be delivered to child's home so he could have more track and two trains which he dearly loves. -
put under my tree grandkids love it -
Great starter train set !
I bought this as a gift for our cousins who have twins born on Dec 30th. Hopefully, they will enjoy this birthday gift for years to come when they pull it out each year and decorate their Christmas tree.
Looks like high quality, I don't how it will stand up to the test of time as I gave it away as a gift. -
Great buy for the price
My grandson is really in to trains and this one
turned out to be his favorite. His dad liked it too. -
I would recomend this product.
I purchased this product for my 3 year old Granddaughter. I have had no problems at all. It assembled easily. It is a tad loud, but other then that, no issues. My Granddaughter loves it. -
Great item and low price!
Lots of fun under the Xmas tree! Runs well, love the smoke and toots! Our 3 yr old grandson was entrhralled! -
Christmas Train lovers!,
Carolina Shores, NC
We have always wanted atrain for under our Christmas tree, so this year we bought this one. It is so cute! -
Smokin good fun
Train is under Christmas tree. Husband and grandkids love it. -
Plastic track was weak and broke easily
Product was nice I bought it to put under Christmas tree. The tracks was flimsy and pieces broke off when putting together. -
It is a great product but I had a lot of the track break in one spot or another. If the track was made a little more sturdy it would be better. -
St Charles MO
Fun for the kiddies!
As a great-grandmother, I am always looking for things to hold the interest of my active great-grandchildren......this is it. -
Jefferson City, MO
My son received this for Christmas and loves it. It is cheaply made so I am hoping it will last a little while. But overall I am pleased with it. I ordered another one to keep for under my tree. -
nice train set
my son is only 2 and has been talking about "choo choo" trains for a few months now. i looked everywhere for a decent priced toy set for his age. they are not cheap---anywhere. Collections Etc solved my problem. train is cheaply priced (thank you!), but really isn't as durable as i would have liked; however, it really is a great buy. Everyone has been enjoying it! falls off the track every so often, but the kids like trying to set it back on their own! -
san antonio, tx
It was okay.
The train itself was very attractive and seems
durable;however, the track was difficult to
assemple and the ends broke easily. The
train kept getting off track. -
Purchased for a friend to add to her decorations for the holidays. -
very nice and easy to handle
delivery was fast -
It's OK Train!
We got this product 9 years ago from a grandma as a christmas present. It looks interesting, but the parts are really cheaply made, with little kids they do brake and you might have it for one year with little kids as they would want to touch it.
It's loud YES, going too fast Yes, gets off track Yes, as a lot of people commented. For $20 i don't think you can get any better than what you get and not complain. We no longer have this train and i was looking into get another one, but im second guessing as i know it will end it up in the trash after christmas. -
Not for LIttle Ones
This train is a good size but not sturdy. It doesn't stay on the tracks for long and is loud. We've let it run loose around our basement floor but just with the engine and coal car. Definitely for older children. -
COVER YOUR EARS
When we set it up my 4 year old grandson covered his ears and said it was too loud. We looked for a switch to turn off the sound but theres not one. You could improve this by having a switch to turn off the sound while its running. This is a cute train and you cant beat the price; you need to put more detail in your catalogs about your items. -
This train sits under my tree as a decoration and looks great, but can not really be used. Track is easily broken and does not hold together well. Never did get the smoke and music to work either. I only paid [$] and no shipping was not worth any more than that. -
Good price, but...
This toy is good for the money and the train works as is expected. The tracks however, do not necessarily stays flat to foster continuous train motion without help. -
Good Poduct for decorations only.
Product will be used as dcoratons around the Christmas Tree.Good Color decor. Not good for continous movement. Does not stay on the tracks, one set speed, not easy to control. -
Oak Forest IL.
Acceptable product for the money
Was excited to get this train set to put around the bottom of the xmas tree for our 2 yr old grandson. Very easy to put together. Little touchy putting wheels on track correctly. When you go to push the on/off button you tend to knock the train off the track so that takes some finesse. Will look for a set that has a remote in the future. Very cute for the money though -
You get what you pay for
You get what you pay for with this. It is flimsy, but I have a 2 year old so the fact that it is very reasonable in price it was worth the purchase. It is a good starter train for a young one. I gave it 3 stars because it sounds like a real train and it actually blows smoke for a short period which he loves. -
Love Christmas time,
See that train a coming
Was not a good Christmas gift for 6 year old boy as it was too vulnerable to childs play and it was too hard to turn off and on and front will did not guide very well. Should be used for display around tree only. -
Very cute and unique but very flimsy! Would recommend being very careful
Putting together! Can break easily! Would not recommend for a child! -
I returned the train since I could not get train to stay on tracks. -
Train works great, track not so much
I used it as a display for our nonprofit history group's booth at the fair and festivals. It attracts people to our booth. The train runs great but the track breaks so easily when we tried to assemble it. We ended up using it as a static display which still worked well in attracting people but it isn't the same as running it on the track. -
Callahan Train Fan,
Good for the $$ you paid
I set this up around the bottom of our Christmas tree. It fits perfectly & is really attractive. We are having some problems of the train staying on the track. -
How do you put in the batteries?
I need instructions on how to put in the batteries -
On/off switch should be push button on coal car (tender). -
Lincoln city. Oregon
Fun to watch
I always loved trains. I love how it has realistic train sounds and how it blows steam. Its adorable. -
Good 1st Train Set
This train set is great, being my 1st set. I love the design and how it blows real smoke! The only complaint I have is that the noise is real loud. I wish there were a way to turn it down or even off at times. -
La Vista, NE
Plan to give as a gift. Looks ok. -
I planned to use it at Christmas around the tree but I will probably give it to one of my friend's children. -
its really cute...
Had a little difficult trying to get the flimsy track to stay togather as we were assembling. As soon as you snap a couple pieces togather another would come loose was kinda frustrating but once assembled it is adorable. -
train is great-tracks are cheap plastic
The train and cars are great. Cheaply made tracks that broke when snapping together. Had to buy a second set just for the tracks. -
Missey the cat,
product was cracked
not very durable -
too much whiz and not enough bang
love the train, the sounds were great. But couldnt really see the smoke. I just use to put under xmas tree. -
Looks Good, Functional Not
The train is actually nice, the tracks are not manufactured correctly. The train does not stay on the tracks and has too much power for the track design. -
I was very excited to get this train but after a few minutes of trying to get the tracks to fit together and the train to stay on the tracks I was very frustrated. To top it off it blew smoke the first time around the track but hasn't since. In trying to fix the tracks better one of the tracks broke. So much for enjoying the train for the Holiday season. I'm very disappointed in this purchase. -
Nice to look at; But it has Issues
I purchased this product thinking that for the price how bad could it be. Well, it has potential but the design has not been thought out well. It's easy to assemble but (important) if the tracks is not flush-on connected the train will derail. With the tracks properly assembled I had no derailments (contrary to other reviewers). My biggest gripe - and the one contributing to this poor review - is that the train, once started, can't be stopped without derailing the whole train! The On/Off single-toggle is on the Coal Car so if you want to turn it off you have to aim and deliver while it zips by. Virtually impossible for an adult; absolutely impossible for a kid. So you have to grab the train while it's running to flip the switch. Everything jumps off the track. What was the designer thinking about? -
Tracks break easy.
Track are to easy to break and it's hard to make it work. -
I would not buy this product again
No comments -
Would not buy again
The train is very attractive but it went stay on the tracks -
the tracks are to fragile and breakable..... -
Train set was great
Ran so fast the cars couldn't sray on the track
Very disappointed - it was a gift for our grandson
Will return -
Cute but tracks are inferior quality
Bought to put under the tree to replace an older train. Very cute train with whistle and smoke, but the tracks are flimsy and the tips of the connections broke off very easily. -
Train came with piece broke. This was a Christmas gift for our son so he wanted to play with it right then so we could not just return it. Train would keep running off track and would not stay on. Track does not stay well together and was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. Train does smoke which was neat but sound is very loud. Pieces break off very easily. Will have to buy another train so I would not recommend this. -
2 pieces of track were broken
tracks need to be sturdier -
Train was broke! They didn't want to tel
Need a new unbroken one resent -
Nice but plastic track
I put the train under the tree and we enjoyed the realistic sounds and lights. I did not like the way you have to start the train it kept jumping off the track. -
the front wheel one them was broke
the front wheel one of them was broken -
missouri city, tx
I bought this for my sons 4th bday. The train worked for a hour and NEVER whistled! I'm returning it. -
Sad & Dissapointed
The tracks are poor quality & break easy.The train constantly jumps the track. -
After about 1 hour of use, the train drive wheels just spin, & barely propell the train forward. -
Was all right
Gave it to my nephew but when the wiring kept coming apart..he lost interested and the train would not stay on the tracks..very difficult to keep going -
My kids love trains, so I thought this would be great under the tree. The train is cute, but does not stay on tracks very good. It falls off easy and needs to be lined up perfectly. Does not stay together well using all the train cars. The batteries go in the coal car, but need to be carefull taking the coal off. The tabs on mine broke off easy. The track does not stay together well either. -
Should Have thought twice
I bought this with looking at the reviews, sometimes not paying attention to the reviews I wish I did this time, my son had the train not even a day and the track broke. Then I read the reviews more and agreed with the poor reviews. -
Mom of Two,
Holiday train set
I was so excited when I saw this train set because I wanted to get the kids a new set. But was very disappointed when it arrived. Flimsy track. Train was nicely detailed but not the best quality materials. Did not keep it. -
Texas Momma of two,
Broke upon arrival
Never took it out of the Styrofoam box. When I removed the Styrofoam lid I saw visually apparent pieces broken off the train. I put the lid back on the train and placed everything back into the original shipping box. Now I have the hassle of returning this item. -
I'm afraid that I can't say anything good about it. When I put it together and started running the train, it jumped the track and the tracks started coming apart. -
pretty, but not durable
Very embarrassing to give as a gift, and within
an hour, the tracks are broken, as they are so
fragile and within minutes the smoke stops working. I don't know what this set is good
for. Not recommended for any child. -
got the train for my mother for a christmas present; the train did not work. she sent it back. this is my first experience with this company. i paid for shipping twice and have nothing to show for it. will not repeat the expereince. -
dissappointed in MN,
ok for the money if you don't mind it
VERY LOUD, DID NOT SMOKE, PIECES BREAK WHEN YOU TRY TO PUT TRACK TOGETHER. CONNECTORS FOR THE TRAINS FALL OFF. EATS BATTERIES VERY VERY FAST. IF YOU DON'T MIND THE EXTREME NOISE AND ALL OF THE ABOVE THAN I SUGGEST IT WILL BE OK. NO DURABLE ENOUGH FOR SMALL CHILDREN. I ENDED UP BUYING A BIGGER BETTER TRAIN FOR A LITTLE MORE $ AT A DRUG STORE AND IT WAS WORTH IT!! -
the train does not stay on the tracks at all -
Absolutly not worth sny smount of money!
We bought the train for my son and right out of the box, tracks began to break. The tracks were difficult to put together after already being flimsy and broken. The train was not the same as pictured and is a different color than we had thought was coming. I have never had an issue with the company but was left sorely dissapointed in this train. -
not impressed with junk,
Missing pieces - boo hoo
Was missing a piece of the track so we could not assemble it nor use it - was very dissapointed! -
CHEAP-CHEAP-CHEAP-DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY
VERY dissatisfied with this product. Was broken before it even got out of the box. -
Don't waste your money
Hard to put the tracks together and they broke easily. Nice looking train set if they could improve the tracks. -
Port St. Lucie , Fl.
I can't understand how anyone could give this a good review after trying it out. It's nice looking, but that's about it. The track is so flimsy and the train constantly runs off of it. Trains don't connect together well so one get left behind while others move. Seriously, don't waste your money. -
Don't buy it!
Bought it and regret it. Ended up paying only [$] but that was just disappointing for myself. Tracks were falling apart in first few minutes when I was assembling it. Train doesn't stay in the track. Wagons can't be pulled at all. Only 1 wagon can be pulled. Train goes fast and the track is long but all is pointless since nothing stays on the truck and each time wagon passes track falls apart. Bought it but I'm not even going to send it back since is not worth to pay for shipping. Sound and light is cool and train can go over the floor. -
sad Christmas gift :(,
I bought 2 of these trains for my grandsons. We put one together. The first problem is that the train is very difficult to fit on the track, very hard for a young child. Within 20 minutes the track was broken and unusable. -
BAD performance but goods looks
Fast shipping, did not run when received, took apart and repaired. The train ran for a short time then quit running again. All plastic but looked good under the christmas tree as an ornament. -
There were missing tracks. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk. I'm returning it. -
Staten Island, NY
Junk, Don't waste your money.
Breaks just looking at it. -
Choo Choo Man,
falls off track and broke
Used under our tree fell off track once and broke -
elf the helper,
Very attractive but fell off track once and broke -
Flimsy Piece of Junk
Save yourself a tremendous exercise in frustration: this train set is flimsily made, difficult to set on the railroad tracks, and derails constantly. I finally gave up and threw it in the trash, where it belongs. -
Las Vegas, NV
Cute train, but ...
Train does not stay on the track. -
Prairie Village, KS
Track broke when trying to put it together. Train was cute but cheap. Couldn't keep train on track. The track had to be in an oval shape or it wouldn't make the curves. Should be round as it is suppose to go around a tree.
Had to pay return shipping on an item that broke while putting it together. -
Don't Waste Your Money!
I bought this item because the reviews I read said that this train was good enough to display and not to play with. I wasn't looking for a toy so I was okey with that. Well I disagree, I just wasted my money. The train I got wasn't able to pull the weight off all four pieces. It kept getting off the track. So we tried it with only the two that need to be connected; that worked a little better but still struggled. My boys were disappointed and so was I. In this case I would recommend buying a more expensive train. At least it will work and you wouldn't wasting your money. -

Doesn't Stay on Track
The track is so cheap that a piece broke right away just putting it together, gently! Could only get the engine and the next car to roll on the track, wouldn't roll with all 4 cars together. And with only the first 2, couldn't even make it around the track, kept coming off. Big waste of money. -
This train looks nice and has great sound BUT it is very poorly made, goes off the track and the track comes apart very easily. Difficult to keep together. -
Train good, tracks, not so much!
Got this set for 8 yr. old granddaughter for Christmas. Tried to set it up a couple of days after. The train set seems durable and of good quality. The tracks were breaking to pcs. as I was trying to put them together. Quite a few small pcs. broke off where they connect. The tracks would not stay together when the train was traveling on them. They need to be metal tracks which would hold up better and carry the weight of the train cars. Not sending it back, not worth the expense. She just plays with the train without the tracks! Not as fun, but better than trashing the entire set! -
looks are deceiving
The product was to be used around the tree but, it would not stay on the track.Also the section of broken track would not stay together. I would like to return this but don't have the return shipping label, it was missing on the packing slip. Not to excited about the $7.99 shipping fee being deducted from my refund price either. This has been so disappointing as it looked to be just what I wanted. -
5551 Evergreen Lane, Miltona Mn 56354
the train set was broken; my grandson never got to play with or run it. -
Cheap junk tracks
Very disappointed. Tracks are cheap and break just trying to put together. -
Don't Buy This Train
I am going to return this train. Please don't waste your money. It was a disappointment. -
grand kids dissapointed track would not stay together train would come off tracks because tracks came apart not a good connecting sysyem -
tom bumbed out,
I was disappointed that the noise is too loud and there is a strong smell. Would not recommend buying -
GAVE IT TO GOODWILL!
It's cute but I spent more than an hour trying to get it to stay on track...keep the cars together...keep all the wheels on the track. It never smoked...it did have a whistle. I've put it back in the box, and will donate it. Maybe somebody can enjoy the frustration. -
San Pedro, CA
terrible does not even stay on the tra
the toy you could never give to a child. it is junk -
Didn't work at all
Did everything we could, new batteries, checked connections, everything. Didn't work. Real disappointment -
Cheap plastic. I bought it for our son and just waiting to give it to him as a toy to play with. It's small and ugly. -
Train won't move
The product was easy to put together but after putting the new batteries in it, it just makes noise but does not move!! Frustrating. Moved wires around and changed batteries but does not move! -
Horrible. Didn't work..
I was extremely unhappy with the train set. I didn't work. Will not order from this company again. -
The worst thing about this product is that it didn't work. It was attractive in the box but once it was assembled it failed to work. Very disappointing. -
too much style and not enough function
the tracks are so flimsy that they break at the slightest tuch. the train wheels do not stay o the track. so the train constantly comes off the tracks. NOT GOOD! -
Not worth it
Not worth the money it was broke easy didn't run on tracks -
This is a cheep item. the track will NOT stay together so therefore the train will not stay on the tracks. It is very flimsey and easy to break. The trains will not stay hook togather. There is not one good thing about this train set I can say. [...] I got this train on sale for around $15.00 It is not even worth one star. -
It was larger than it looked but it won't stay on the tracks for even 1 time around. Very flimsy. Great Sounds....smoke stopped after 15 minutes of use...no longer smokes. I do not recommend wasting your money. -
woul not recommend
bought this train for tree the train would not stay on tracks any ideas -
South Boston VA
" dont waste your money"
I broke the track just getting it out of the box. The train is nice but now we cant use it. -
Very disillusioned when I was ready to get my tree train and it does not work.
wait a month for your order now, I stay with the train does not work, a disappointment and sadness for my family and my children .... -
would not dare to recommend this!!]]
So excited when i got my package [...], but when hubby assembled this train, oh boy what a piece of junk! guess rules apply "you always get what you paid for" , will not stay on tracks.. will not attached to each caboose.. don't ever buy this [...] -
I bought this for my son last year for Christmas. It broke into pieces in a few days. Now I am having to get him a different one this year, but from a different place. He and I were very disappointed. -
Not worth buying
It looks great though very fragil....the train sounds are great including the smoke and light; however, it will not stay on the track when you click it on....runs off before the first complete circle. Can't really use it. The train only has sounds, smoke, and lights when you click it on...but it runs off the tracks. Not worth the money.... -
toxic toy not for kids.
This train was advertised in the catalogues with a musical note, thus making you believe that it produced music and it doesn't. In addition, the smoke smells bad, it produces a smell like cigarretes, burning smell and it smells toxic and produces cough. It is not a safe item for children or for adults. -
This would be an enjoyable item if it weren't so noisy. Need a way to turn of the sound. Had to put it away because of the noise. -
This train set was junk!! The train does not stay on track. When picking up track pieces i dropped two pieces from maybe 2ft. off floor & they broke where the track connects. spent more time trying to get train to stay on track than used it for fun. it did not go under xmas tree it went into garbage within 2 hrs of opening box. -
TRADITIONAL TRAIN SET.
I AM NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL. WILL SET THIS BACK. -
