Lionel’s Polar Express set has been the best-selling train in the company’s 113 year history. How could we make it any better? Add the new LionChief Remote control system!
These new sets are shipping to dealers soon so you’ll have them in plenty of time for the 2013 Christmas season. The Polar Express retains all of the quality and excitement of the original models and puts the power in your hands with walk-around radio control.
Set up of the new set is now even easier than ever. Snap together the FasTrack, plug in the wall pack, put the train on the rails and you are ready to go! The hand-held controller is intuitive and easy enough for our youngest engineers. With its impressive range, you can have complete control of the train’s speed, direction and sounds from anywhere in the room. Speaking of sounds, our new Railsounds RC package includes sound clips from the 2004 movie release for that authentic “All aboard the Polar Express” experience.
Like our other LionChief Remote sets, the radio frequency for the Polar Express is unique to that set. So you can run other trains in the same room – even the same layout – without any interference. And the trains will run on your conventional, TMCC or LEGACY controlled layout too. It’s the perfect way to start, share or grow your collection and hobby.

- Berkshire 2-8-4 locomotive featuring
- Die-cast metal body
