Lionel Trains Polar Express Ready-to-Play Large 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 Train Set. Highly detailed and made to look just like the magical train from the book, this larger scale set is built for children ages four and up and lets you bring the Polar Express to life right in your living room.

Pulled along by a battery-powered locomotive with a working headlamp, this remote controlled ready-to-play train set also includes a passenger coach and observation car. Each car links to the next with a fixed knuckle coupler for simple connections.

Simply add batteries (not included) to the remote control and the locomotive and then you're ready to roll. With the easy-to-operate remote control, move the train forward or backward down the included track and press the buttons to sound the bell and whistle. Configure the track as an oval or circle depending on your available space.

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.
