Perfect for around the tree or your Christmas village scene, the North Pole Express is another fun addition to our Christmas train line up. This new train will work well by itself, or you could “interchange” some cars from your other favorite North Pole railroads.
The set includes a powerful 0-8-0 locomotive with plenty of traction for those icy winter rails. Decorated in the colors of the season, with a prancing Jack frost on the smokebox, the locomotive will fit right in with other holiday decor or the bright packages beneath your tree. The locomotive features everything you’d want in a holiday train:
- Transformer controlled forward / neutral / reverse operation
- Powerful maintenance-free motor
- Die Cast metal body with metal frame and trucks
- Working Headlight
- Puffing Smoke
- Air Whistle in the tender
- Operating coupler on tender
- Traction Tires
- Engineer and Fireman figures
Trailing along behind the locomotive is an equally brightly colored boxcar which plays Christmas music (there’s an on-off switch too for those “quiet” runs!) The car looks as good as it sounds, carrying toys from Santa’s Toy Co. and a strict warning not to open until Christmas.
Next comes the “Tannenbaum Transport” gondola loaded with six removable trees. Believe it or not, at one time gondola loads of cut Christmas trees were a common sight on real trains in late November and December.
And of course it wouldn’t be a Christmas train without a lighted caboose at the end!
The set also includes a 40 x 60″ oval of our FasTrack and a reliable CW-80 transformer to complete your set up. Use the set on a platform or the carpet under the tree without any problems. Suggested retail price is $289.99. Bring Jack Frost and the “Snowflake Route” home for the holidays this year!
