How about a little Christmas in July? Lionel’s complete new 2014 Christmas Catalog is available for viewing on our website. Here’s a look at one of our new sets to get you thinking about this year’s Christmas train display!
Using our Hall Class 4-6-0, this new set brings all the charm of an English Victorian Christmas home. (For more background on the actual locomotives, see this earlier blog on our new Albert Hall set!) This train will be a natural complement to many of the Christmas village collectables as part of a larger display.
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!
This new Lionel set captures the graceful lines of these beautiful trains beset with all the warmth and charm of Christmas’ past. Controlled by the LionChief Remote, the new train is easy to control and comes with many great features:
- Electric locomotive controlled by remote
- Operating headlight
- Puffing smoke with ON/OFF switch
- RailSounds RC with steam chuffing and background sounds, whistle, bell and user-activated announcements
- ON/OFF switch for steam chuff and background sounds (all other sounds are only activated by pressing the buttons)
- Operating coupler on rear of tender
- Maintenance-free motor
- Cab window “glass”
- Die-cast metal locomotive body and tender frame
- Two traction tires
- Separately applied details including buffers, coupler air lines, brake stands, marker lamps and valve gear
The user-friendly LionChief remote features a single forward/reverse/speed control knob and three separate buttons for the whistle, bell and announcements. The sounds for this set will have a distinctly British flair, from the shrill whistle to the Christmas music selection. The remote requires three AAA batteries, not included.
Retail for the set is $399.99. See you local Lionel dealer to order one today!
