This review is from: Bachmann Trains Thoroughbred Ready-to-Run HO Scale Train Set (Toy) Customer Video Review Length:: 0:41 Mins I bought this Bachmann train set to put under the Christmas tree this year. I was thinking of getting the bigger O or G scale train, but the HO is the perfect size and I’m really glad I went with it. The HO size has a perfectly sized track that fits under the Christmas tree without needing the typical 4’X 8′ space that most larger trains need for the track. The Locomotive is the heaviest of the train pieces and most well built piece, but that’s because the other train pieces just need to roll behind it. Overall I’m really happy with the build quality, and the track was super easy to snap together. The conductor controls are also really easy to use and my 2 year old quickly learned how to move the train forward and in reverse in a manner of minutes. I would recommend this train to anyone looking for a train set for under the Christmas tree. Great Price, fairly quiet, and great size! **Here is some video I took of the train to help you see how it looks and operates. I was running the train at about 1/3 of the full speed. The train operates and stays on the track at full speed as long as the track is completely level on the floor, or on a table. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (7) Reply 40 of 41 people found the following review helpful GOOD VALUE Great train set for beginners., March 4, 2012 By dextex “dextex” (Colleyville, Tx United States) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Bachmann Trains Thoroughbred Ready-to-Run HO Scale Train Set (Toy) The train arrived very promptly (Prime) and was in great shape. The cost was around $74. Store price was around $95. It only has three cars but that is enough. Our six year old grand son is able to put the track together, put the cars and train on the track and enjoys connecting the cars and running the train. It is the combination of the houses, small buildings, gas station and imagination that makes it such a fine item. He is continually changing the layout of the buildings around the track. For a few dollars you can go to the Dollar Store and buy some moss sheets that he uses as a field and some other items he was able to turn into shrubs. Its all about the imagination. This product is the melody to the harmony of creation in encouraging a young child’s mind. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 42 of 44 people found the following review helpful great looking little train, July 21, 2011 By doctordoc – = Durability: = Fun: = Educational: Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
