a fun product -
By: chazie from Ulysses, PA
Had a lot of fun putting the track under the tree, and keeping it on track. Reviewer is an over 60 adult male who remembers his youthful train.
Good Purchase for home no children -

Love the train but comes off track with small touch. Great to go around tree and listen to the train whistle. It is a good conversation piece for all.

We purchased this same product 20 years ago. Last year it quit and was extremely happy to find the same product again. We put this train around our Christmas tree. We have grandkids that are excited we have another one.
Hardly Classic Train Set -
By: JimDMA from Boston, MA
Product arrived with marks on the box indicating that it had been used a gift prior to my purchasing. Obviously, a returned product being resold. On opening box I discovered several of the couplers were broken. Maybe this was why it was returned in the first place. I purchased a similar product in 2006 from Orvis and was hoping this new train would be of the same quality. I was very wrong. It was returned for a full refund.
Poor Quality Toy -
By: trainwrecktwo from Savannah GA
We purchased the train for our grandson who is three years old. Parts began to fall off of it from the time we opened the box. The engine is sturdy but the cars are poor quality. One drop on a carpeted floor was the end of the caboose. The roof fell off. The next was the freight car. The wheels fell off. Grandson was upset but not as much as his grandfather. We shall see what Orvis has to say. After all their name is on the box.
Love this train! -

We have this train going around our Christmas tree. Our two year old granddaughter loves to give her stuffed animals a ride. The size of the train is perfect!
Santa's Train -

I ordered this train set for my 1st and only grandchild. It was delivered well before Christmas, was top qualilty built, and he simply loved it! It was his best present by far! Exactly what I expected from Orvis products. Thank you.
so-so at best -

When we opened the box, we saw that one wheel was already broken off. The set is very cheap and rickety. However, the price is pretty low in comparison to other train sets, so I guess you get what you pay for!
