BUYER BEWARE!

As per other posts, battery box doesn't work (with new Duracell batteries). Advice from Lego customer service to buy Kodak or Varta batteries as 'expensive brand' batteries are the wrong shape at the positive end. To me the correct term to use would be 'design defect'. Very disappointed.

Good product but does fall apart quite easily. Important to keep the instructions. Having built it having to keep it away from grandchildren
until a bit older due to the coming apart problem.

I thought long and hard about how many stars to give this and settled on 5. However that's probably because I am a lego lover. Someone who is less of a fan may end up giving it a lower score.

I bought it for my sons Christmas present. It probably took about two hours of assembly (mostly) me. If I had left him to it, it would have taken him a lot longer.

The train is amazingly fast, in fact it is so fast that if you run it at full speed it normally just crashes. I am not sure how long the track is but I bought 2 boxes of Lego 7499 (extra track) and one box of Lego 7895 (as I write (27th January 2015), all of these were substantially cheaper when i bought them (pre Christmas) than they are now). I think if i had not bought additional track then it would not have been as much fun. Even with the additional track I bought there doesn't seem to be enough track to use the points in a meaningful way. I think i will buy some more track when the price goes back down to a sensible level.

I have read some of the previous reviews regarding batteries. I have been using rechargeable batteries and had one instance (after i charged them the second time) where nothing seemed to work. However I recharged the batteries again and it seemed to be ok.

Update 18th Feb. I have dropped the review down to 3 stars. Every time I have had to replace the batteries with i have had problems with rechargeables I have had problems and spent 10-15 minutes putting the batteries in and out until they work. I contacted Lego via the web site and asked for a new battery box. I had an email back with troubleshooting options (none of which were really relevant to my problem) and I was asked to call Lego on a freephone number. I spoke to a friendly Lego person who told me that rechargeable batteries don't work with the set. I queried why I have at least 20 other items in my house which use rechargeable batteries perfectly happily so what was different about this set.... She said they would send me a new box but almost 2 weeks later I have not had anything. I spotted this on the lego web site which seems a bizarre explanation but I am not technical enough to know whether its true or no. http://service.lego.com/en-gb/helptopics/products/themes/power-functions/battery-box-issues

Fantastic item. Quality is really good and runs so smoothly around the track. My son is 6 and he loved building it and has great fun playing with it. He especially enjoys the remote control to operate speed etc. Would recommend.

This is a great Lego set. The instructions are clear and it is fun to build. Could come with more rail but other than that it does everything that one needs for a Lego train

Excellent. Only problem is it does not like most batteries. After emailing Lego they informed me to use cheap batteries such as Kodak. These worked perfectly. Disappointing that it took a good week to find this out, not good. This fact should be stipulated on the box.

My 4 y.o. son loves it! Outstanding LEGO quality. The set requires a lot of AAA batteries (not included) that lasted for 10 days and the included oval track is a bit too short. Still, I would recommend this set to any Lego fan.

This really is a great set. My 6 year old son built most of it to be honest however I did have to help him with some of the wheel parts. A very detailed set which is played with nearly every day. The train looks fantastic!

My daughter loves it as my son had the red passenger train 2 years ago.
This 2014 version is just as good and looking very modern.
Make sure you get 9 AAA batteries. I use rechargeable ones.

The train set is great but the battery box did not work. We bought both this train and the cargo train and both had defective battery boxes! :( Amazon sorted out the problem with its excellent customer service But I was disappointed by Lego :(
