This weekend my kids decided to take over my layout. I figured it was a great opportunity to highlight some of the great sets that Lionel makes for those entering the hobby or just semi-scale collectors. Enjoy!





Hi Chris,

Great video.  Fun.

One question about the Santa Fe engine.

Does the front truck wander back and forth as it goes along the track?  Bought a used set from a forum member for my grandson for Christmas and the truck wanders.

I have this set and the truck does move about. If run at a slow speed, to me makes it look realistic as a real trains front truck moves as you see it coming at you into the station. (IMO) due to the track real or our layouts being not perfectly flat or straight.

Since these are pretty much the only O gauge three rail sets for sale in the current market, it's good they work well, are simple and reliable, are compatible with command control layouts, and have play value. I own a few and I think they are well designed for the new hobbyist market and reasonable value.  Clearly not high end nor designed for decades of intensive use, but a good entry point.  And experienced hobbyists obviously enjoy them too,  reading this commentary.  I am thankful there is at least one vendor making entry level sets.
