5.0 out of 5 stars Hornby train 10 Sep 2009
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The train was bought as a present and has provided much joy. It needs to be for an older child or adult due to the fragility of the train. As a product it is excellent and the attention to detail is awesome.
