Your child will have everything he needs to start running a railroad with the Lionel Pennsylvania Flyer Freight Train Set. With a boxcar, three-dome tank car, engineer and fireman figures, industrial diorama and more, this kids train set encourages your child to begin building his imaginary Pennsylvania railroad network. Its air whistle, puffing smoke, working headlight, and transformer-controlled forward, neutral, and reverse operation features add to the realistic look. This Lionel electric train set features a PowerMax transformer, a billboard with two images, 10 telephone poles, a caboose, an 0-8-0 locomotive and tender that your children will enjoy setting up. The curved, straight, and terminal FasTrack sections add to the detailed scene of the Pennsylvania railroad. This children's train has a powerful, maintenance-free motor and comes with a die-cast locomotive body for durability. The Lionel Pennsylvania Flyer Freight Train Set is easy to assemble.

Review 1 for Lionel Pennsylvania Flyer Freight Train Set

Perfect Train Set

This is a perfect train set for the novice. Although I own a ton of HO and N gauge, this was my first O gauge. I thought it would be good for my 7 year old and it has been perfect. It went together in 1/2 hour and the track system is VERY stable. The "smoking" engine leaves a little to be desired as you need to see the smoke at just the right angle as the light hits it. Otherwise it's invisible! The whistle could be more robust and the bell shouldn't require a special "not included" train car to operate. Hard to explain to a kid why the bell button on the transformer does nothing. Forget the battery operated plastic models. Opt for this one!

Bought the train for my 5 year old son who loves trains. He has played with it constantly for the past two weeks. The only problem is with the whistle. It works some of the time. It might be operator error, though.

My 4.5 year old son was given this train for Christmas by his grandfather and he loves it! He's been around trains since he was born so he handles it very well. It's very simple to operate and he loves the whistle. You can't go wrong w/ this train. Lots of fun!

The train set was very nice and easy to assemble. The person receiving the train as a Christmas gift was delighted. Needed to have more accessories such as a train depot, trees, houses, etc.

Unit(brand new, out of the box) ran about 3 hours total and the transformer died. Called Lionel and I have to return at my cost. For the price, they should provide return tag.

I knew buying a Lionel train to give for Christmas
was the perfect gift. We have bought Lionel for
years and the quality and value are always what
we expect.
