Lionel Trains Polar Express Ready-to-Run O-Gauge Train Set w/ Book

All aboard The Polar Express! Brave the tall mountains, dark forests and barren plains of ice to reach the city at the top of the world and make your Christmas wish with the Lionel Polar Express O-Gauge Train Set. Highly detailed and made to look just like the magical train from the book, you can bring the Polar Express to life right in your living room!

Pulled along by a railroad track-powered electric locomotive with a working headlamp and puffing smoke, this remote controlled ready-to-run train set also includes a coal tender, two passenger coaches, an observation car and four character figures. It's quick and easy to start your adventure. Simply assemble the track, connect the adapter to the terminal track section and plug it into the wall outlet, then put the train on the track and start enjoying the sights and sounds of the Polar Express.

The Lionel LionChief system features a wireless remote control, AC wallpack powered FasTrack rails and enhanced sound with RailSounds RC. From the remote control, you can activate bell and whistle sounds and initiate passenger announcements, so no one misses their stop! The large oval track features Lionel's FasTrack construction which offers straight-forward assembly, so you can spend less time on setup and more time watching the train chuff on down the line.

With this incredible train set, you'll also receive a copy of "The Polar Express" book by award-winning children's author and illustrator Chris Van Allsburg.
