Product Description

Here's a handsome addition to the Lionel Polar Express product line - an exquisitely crafted G-Gauge train set that can be run on rechargeable battery technology. You can operate this train using a 9.6 volt rechargeable battery (not included) or use six conventional C batteries (which are included) - it's your choice! The set also comes with an easy-to-operate RC remote controller (with two AA batteries included).

But what sets this set apart is the unmatched craftsmanship. The engine and tender have details never before seen in a G-Gauge format. The observation car has an endearing "disappearing hobo" feature. All of this is available at an unbelievably affordable price.

The Polar Express G-Gauge Train Set includes:

  • G Gauge steam locomotive and tender
  • Passenger coach with two opening doors
  • Observation car with "disappearing hobo" feature, and opening door
  • 3 Polar Express figures (conductor, boy, hobo)
  • Easy to assembly G-Gauge track (55"x72" oval)
  • Easy to unpack easy to repack storage box
  • RC remote controller
  • Six C & two AA batteries


The Locomotive Features:

  • Highly detailed G-Gauge steam locomotive
  • Authentic train sounds including authentic bell and whistle
  • Working headlight

  • Handsomely detailed passenger coach
  • Observation car with "disappearing hobo" feature
  • Fixed knuckle couplers

    I purchased this on Black Friday for my almost 2.5 year old son. It was easy to put together, and looked amazing running under our Christmas tree. He absolutely loved the conductor's voice, bell and whistle, and he figured out the remote in minutes. He struggles to move the people from the observation deck to the front of the train to the platform, but I think this is due to his age.He knows how to do it, but the pieces are so small! The only reason that I did not give this train 5 stars is because you can't turn it off. You can turn off the remote (which is still using the original batteries after three weeks), but you have to wait for the train to turn itself off (after TEN MINUTES of idle time!)! The other option is to disconnect the power source from the engine to the tender, but I'd rather not have my toddler messing with that. This train is seriously awesome, but buy at least a dozen C batteries right off the bat!

    This is way over priced. I got it for 30% off and STILL paid [$]. It is at [@] for [$]. Tried to return online purchase BUT you can ONLY get store credit if you return an online purchase to a store. OR you have to pay for shipping to mail it back to get your refund. Depending on what you are saving - it's not worth the hassle. Watch the return policy here.Bottom line, the kids loved it but when I find that I overpaid by $50, and the store does NO price matching OR do they allow you to return to a store - to get your original method of payment back - I Have ZERO plans to purchase from this store again online EXCEPT to use down this gift card!

                  We decided to put a train under the tree for Christmas morning and thought this was a great choice. It has all of the Polar Express bells and whistles (literally) and the kids love the movie. They were so excited when it was circling the tree when they woke up. It is a great size, not too much assembly and it was a big hit.

                  Over all I am pleased with this train, unfortunately I have a young child that I feel this train is not suitable for. It is too big and he wants to lug it around like a Thomas train. Also it requires two different sets of batteries, and the ones in the train are already drained. This is a perfect train for running under the christmas tree during the holidays since it is Polar Express themed. I just dont see it being used everyday due to it's size.

                  The train is excellent and has been used almost everyday for the ten days since Christmas by my 4 year old son. It is very attractive with authentic sounds and durable. We have been running it on C batteries and will need to change them soon. I have not been able to find the 9.6 Volt rechargeable battery that is advertised but will get one if/when I find it.
