The set includes a LionChief-controlled “Saint Nicholas” Hall Class 4-6-0 and tender, two coaches, a combination car, wall-pack power supply, remote control, and a 40 x 60 inch oval of FasTrack with eight O-36 curves, three 10 inch straight and one plug-in terminal track. Adding to the fun, the train plays British Christmas music in addition to its train sounds!

Would it be possible to upgrade my Hall class Harry Potter locomotive to Lion Chief? Will there be kits offered for all our conventional engines?

At this time, there are no plans to offer LionChief retrofit kits.

Glad to see that you are expanding the LionChief line of reasonably priced O gauge trains. Sure would like to see an F3 A-A powered set available in both freight and passenger sets.

Come on Lionel, don’t make these repaints that disgrace British locomotives. Make more Hall class types, like the Albert locomotive, or branch out to make more British locomotives.
