Background: Looking for the perfect set to put around your tree? Here it is! The engine is a 4-4-2 steam locomotive. It is all metal and features a headlight, forward and reverse, and smoke. It has two switches under the cab, one to turn the smoke on and off, and the other to lock the engine in one direction.
The tender has an air whistle and an operating coupler on the back. The whistle is activated by a button on the transformer. The tender shell is plastic and the wheels are metal.
The cars in the set include a boxcar that plays several different Christmas songs, including Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (a 9 volt battery is required), a gondola with elf and reindeer figures that chase one another around the load of crates, and a lighted caboose. The cars all have plastic bodies, metal wheels and operating couplers, which can be operated by hand or by using a remote control uncoupling section (available separately).
The set includes a standard 40" by 60" loop of Fastrack, consisting of eight 36-inch diameter curved sections, three 10-inch straight sections, and 10" terminal track section. The transformer is a 30-watt Powermax transformer.
