This review is from: Bachmann Trains Overland Limited Ready – To – Run Ho Scale Train Set (Toy) I’ve read all the other reviews. I’ve been wanting to get into the hobby for over ten years. Every time I regain interest, I read reviews from people who have bought the same product I’m looking for. I usually allow them to scare me off. This time the “Overland Limited” caught my eye. I didn’t want to spend a bunch of dough on something I may loose interest in or that would give me a hard time. After reading the reviews I was a bit apprehensive. In fact I put off buying it for nearly a month before I just figured that the complaints were all from people who might not have read or followed the directions. Some of the wheel assemblies had fallen off in transit, just like the included information mentions. They are very easy to replace and there’s been no problems with that happening since. The track snaps together quite simply and if you follow the directions and check for smoothness at the joints when you’re done, you won’t have derailments. There was a complaint that the freight cars looked like toys. Well, they are toys. If you want one that doesn’t look like a toy then plan on either doing some weathering or paying a lot more money for something else. The only thing I wish was a bit better is the headlight. I think it should be just a bit brighter. Everything else is fine with me and I’m tickled pink to have it.

If you want to operate the Overland Limited Set or play with it, BUY SOMETHING ELSE: The wheels fall off and will not stay on as the train navigates the snap-fit tracks built for it. The Train does not get around the entire loop of tracks without losing nearly all its wheels on the main car as well as the accompanying nine cars. Flipping the switch on the terminal rerailer amounts to a derailment because the wheels can’t handle turns. The worst part is the merchants selling this product know this and will not accept returns or issue refunds or exchanges once the item has been opened. It is a very expensive Train Set which is frustrating especially when I think about the fact that I purchased it as my kid’s first really expensive toy for $198.60 and my kid didn’t play with it for more than five minutes before the wheels fell off. Mind you, this is just while he is watching the train navigate the snap-fit tracks. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 15 of 15 people found the following review helpful Well-detailed train set, December 30, 2010 By JustMe – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Bachmann Trains Overland Limited Ready – To – Run Ho Scale Train Set (Toy) I bought this train for my husband for Christmas. He has always been a fan of HO-sized trains but hasn’t owned one since his youth. The detail on the train is very fine and accurate. The train tracks were easily assembled, but you do need to pay attention to ensure the tracks like up well (not difficult, but we suggest that you run your finger along the top of the rails as we had 2 instances where a rail had popped-up above the adjoining rail, which was easily fixed by disconnecting and carefully reconnecting.) This is a lovely train with a working headlamp and smoke. However, the train would not be a good fit for very young children due to the fine and somewhat fragile detailing on the cars. Lovely… 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
