Fab Birthday Gift
" I bought this set for my grandsons 6th. birthday.
He was thrilled, and we started building right away.
It's a pretty good model of an "American 4-4-0 steamer" with lots of cool features made specially for the toystory theme.
With a few modofications this train can be a serious model with electric motor, lights, working pistons and connecting rods, and IR control.
The next project is to get him the add ons for full IR control.
It was a brilliant afternoon build, and another moment to treasure.
AFOL's will need to make more mods to make this model more realistic, but for kids who know toystory, it's just perfect.

Best version of the Hogwarts Express
" I have the 4708 that came without trainwheels and tender, cool train though.
This version looks much better including the coal tender, more minifigs, baggage trolley and the cool flying car.
Only the passenger coach looks better in the previous sets IMO.
This coach has a better roof, but the rest of the details are less interesting.
The Locomotive in this set is the best looking engine with the coolest details..
How about making a 9volt version like the 10132 ??

Great little motor
" Made for the RC trains.
One advantage to this motor compared to the 88002,
is that the wire can easily be replaced if damaged.
You can use this motor as an auxillary motor for 9volt motors,
using a technic/RC wire to connect them.
Unfortunately this motor has less pulling power than the 88002.
It's a shame the the bogie sides are not included,
as they were on 9volt motors.

Improved motor for IR trains
" This is a better motor than the 8866.
Greater pulling power.
Smooth running.
Wire included.
The only problem that might happen,
is damage to the wire,
and NOT being able to repair/replace it.
It's a shame the the bogie sides are not included,
as they were on 9volt motors.

NO, don't do this !!
" Please DON'T mix tracks, sell the different types separately.
I actually like the flex tracks, but if I need more, I'll buy the package containing flex tracks only.
Please make packs with STRAIGHT TRACK ONLY,
and give the consumer the freedom to choose.
Making and selling mixed packs usually leaves me and other users with some parts not needed. "

Good for different geometri
" I got 2 boxes as compensation from lego while waiting (an eternity)
for my Emerald Night express with power functions.
It's BRILLIANT that you can now easily make a radius 2 , 3 , 4 .....
You can make curves slightly tighter than the normal track circle (not really recommended) all the way up to very soft curves, sweeping through the landscape.
Why, you can even use it as straight tracks.
The flex track is also good for start and end of ramps before and after a bridge,
because it flexes beautifully up and down too.
I would love to see if anyone made a loop running small high speed trains through.
There is a few issues with the flex tracks too.
If you lay out tracks entirely from this system, the trains will soon change the curves and move the track.
This is the smaller of the problems, the real "biggie" is that this track offers a BUMPY RIDE with RECUCED TRACTION.
It does tend to slowly but surely TO SHAKE YOUR TRAINS APART.
On top of this, traction is not as good as on ordinary lego tracks,
locomotives will go into a wheel spin, loosing traction, driving no further.
As long as the flex sections are kept short, no problem,
but in a long soft curve the train might need an extra engine to get traction.

The "Must Have" expansion
" Any trainset needs at least one set to make the play interesting.
The more the merrier, you can hardly get enough switches/points on your train layout,
if you have more trains, you'll need more switches.
Design could have been improved with different geometry, but still cool (and easy) to use.
The only thing that would make me like this product even better ......
I still think there should be power-conducting METAL on top of the rails.
Being a hard headed 9volt fan, I would LOVE if the 9volt track series
got a revival, including tracks and motors.
This system was far to good to end production.
The RC and IR trains ar brilliant, but extremely costly to feed with batteries.
This problem never was an issue vith 12volt or 9volt trains,
getting their power transformed right out of the wall socket.
I like this product a lot, but I LOVE the 9volt tracks. "

If you're into TRAINS ....
" ..... You've probably already mounted lots of this light set to get front and tail lights.
I'm a train-o-holic , and I'll put lights in wherever possible.
Nice and BRIGHT light beam when given 9 volts from a battery box og from the 8884 IR reciever.
It's an LED light, and it will probably outlive any older bulb type light "

"Must Have"
" If you have one or more 8878 rechargable battery boxes,
you must have at least one of these chargers.
Easy to use, it recharges a 8878 in about two hours.
Good an solid, I have used mine for nearly a year now.
Only on sigh .... PRICE .... 199 DKR for this is way over the top.
The only comfort is that this unit and the (also very expensive) 8878,
(costing 499 DKR)
will save batteries, and eventually a lot of money spent on batteries.

Wow
" What a stunning train set.
Great design, looks aerodynamic, great in red.
Price in Denmark is about 2/3 of the 7939 cargo train.
Could have extra coaches and opening traindoors.
Great little station and signal.
Needs much more track to actually get to top speed without deailing in corners.
Add 8870 lights to make this model even cooler.
