Best little moving train

This little powered engine set is the best in my opinion. I have a more expensive powered locomotive (called "Charlie") but this little red engine is my favorite.
Read complete review

This little powered engine set is the best in my opinion. I have a more expensive powered locomotive (called "Charlie") but this little red engine is my favorite.

We have mountains, bridges, and the Imaginarium spiral log train track set and this little guy can power up and down no problem.
(The other expensive locomotive struggles sometimes and needs a nudge.)

There is one locomotive in the set that is powered by batteries and then three cars - a coal, passenger, and caboose that are pulled along.

The locomotive in this set requires 3 batteries total. Two "button" (1.5v) batteries go in the back panel to make the train noises (whistles, chugging and dinging). And one AAA battery to move the engine forward, reverse, and power the light on the front. To look for the compartment look in the red smoke stack, see the screw, use a skinny screwdriver, loosen, then pull red smoke stack housing up and pull black wheel base down to expose the battery compartment.

If you push the yellow button on top that makes the noises. And if you push the black switch behind the last wheel in it goes forward, push it the other way and the wheels reverse.

I've had this set for over a year and I've replaced the button batteries once, but I have put in probably a handful of the AAA batteries. That's because one of my kids decided to send this engine into every dark and dusty corner of my house, soo... needless to say it is played with quite often both on and off the tracks.

Grandma has this set too. She had hers first and she has had it for at least two years.
We don't usually buy the same toy grandma has but we made an exception for this train set.

It's a great set. Everyone loves to play with it.

I bought this for my little train lover, a nearly 2 yr old who spends all day setting up and playing with Thomas, his wooden sets, a plastic track set, and his VTech Smart Wheels sets. I should have known better by the cheap packaging, but the idea of a motorized train (something he didn't own) made me buy it. The 3 cars that it is supposed to pull are all wooden, but the engine is plastic, with plastic wheels. It can't pull any of them effectively, even with a brand new battery. It can't go around curves without heading straight off the track. When you turn the motorized part off, the wheels don't turn, so you can't even manually play with it. Now my child is frustrated b/c he loves the fact that it goes by itself, but what good is an engine if it can't pull its cars? I will be returning this and getting my money back. This is a piece of junk.

        I've seen snails faster than this train. It barely makes it up small hills by itself. If you add the other trains in the pack this train has no chance to move. It is complete garbage.

          My 3-year-old won't put these trains down. It's nice that each car and the engine are all different colors; it makes it unique from his other trains that all seem to be the same color.

          It's a safe purchase for a train lover. The receiver will not be disappointed.

              This is a must have if your kids like Thomas and/or have the tracks set up. Works well on all related tracks and is battery powered for additional fun. And...fairly priced for three trains.

                The train engine is not quite powerful enough with the single battery to smoothly go up small hills (wooden tracks), especially while pulling the other train cars. Even with a new battery it is very slow on the inclines. It also frequently goes off the tracks as it goes around the curves.

                Love that the fact it's a motorized train for a wooden train set. Sounds and lights are added bonus. Pretty cool to watch it climb hills and maintain speed down hills, but it doesn't take turns well at all. It falls off the track when it hits even a slight curve because the wheels don't shift like the other train cars do. Also, you can't really push it along the track when it's off.

                      This train quattro is great quality and only $19.99. It's made of wood and the lead train has a button which makes a train sound: whistle and chugging. They also magnetically connect. My son loves it! I'll buy more Imaginarium trains.
