Hey Guys,

 

We just tried out the new Lionel Peanuts Halloween 2-4-2 Steam LionChief Remote Control Set #30214  and I must say these new LionChief remotes are pretty awesome.  They're bringing fun back into trains and I truly think kids will find it "cool". I know when I was running it, it made me want a set for Halloween.  Kudos to Lionel for adding a whole new dimension to trains.  

 

You can check out our videos and peanuts demonstration on our you tube channel

Best,

Sounds would be good on a ghoulish Halloween set.  I'm not sure it fits well with Peanuts.  Clearly adding more versatility to the starter sets. Pretty cool.

It needs a tender or sound car with Lucy saying:  My lips have touched dog lips!"

To be honest I don't get the theme sets, but people must like them (and buy them) because Lionel keeps making them.  I DO like that they are putting variety (and affordability) into their starter sets, and I like to see the ol' 4-4-2 in any incarnation.

Yes Ken, thanks for the video updates and keep them coming.

 

There are some themed items I like and some I don't.  The Halloween spooky sounds on this set are cool and should help bring a few new people into model trains.  However, since this is a licensed Peanuts product, IMO it would have been much more appealing if Lionel put a soundbite or two in from the actual Peanuts show "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" i.e. Charlie Brown" "I got a rock."

 

 

You can have a steam train ...If you'd just lay down your tracks.
