Lionel’s G Gauge line is growing in 2014, offering our younger engineers more options to exercise their creativity and expand their empires. Joining our existing line of G Gauge sets will be new sets with our licensed partners as well as separate sale rolling stock, track packs and accessories.
New sets to the G Gauge line for 2014 include a The Polar Express Freight train with a gondola filled with hot chocolate containers and caboose. The set retails for $149.95 A special 10th Anniversary boxcar is available separately for $34.95. Add even more fun with the new The Polar Express figure pack with four familiar faces from the movie for $19.99.
The Snoopy™ Railways G Gauge Set features a 2-8-2 steam locomotive and tender, boxcar and caboose. The set retails for $149.95. Expand the train with a tank car and gondola (complete with crates and Snoopy’s red dog house!) available separately for $34.95 each.
Our new Coca-Cola® and Crayola sets feature a 4-4-0 locomotive with their boxcar and caboose. The Coca-Cola® set retails for $164.95 and the Crayola for $149.95. An add-on gondola and tank car are available for the Crayola set as well for $34.95 each.
Each set includes a 55″ x 72″ oval of track and a remote control. Locomotives have working headlights and steam sounds including a bell and whistle which are activated by the remote. G Gauge trains run on six C batteries or a 9.6V rechargeable battery pack and the remote requires two AA batteries not included in the sets. Built from sturdy plastics, these rugged trains are designed for kids ages 3 and up.
With all of these new sets and cars, you’re going to need some more track! In addition to straight and curve track packs, Lionel is adding new left and right switches and expansion sets to the line.
Lionel’s all-plastic G Gauge track is engineered for easy assembly and durability. Left and right switches are manually controlled by turning the attached switch stand. They retail for $19.99 each.
For more fun, pre-packaged inner and outer loop expansion packs will add a siding to the oval included with sets. The inner loop set includes a left and right switch and four curves for $44.99. The outer loop set includes a left and right switch, six curves and two straights for $59.99.
Lionel G Gauge trains are a great way to introduce young engineers to the world of toy trains and invite hours of imaginative play. And with more trains and accessories than ever, the stories your kids will come up with can only get bigger! See your local Lionel dealer, or http://www.LionelStore.com for availability and ordering.
