Night Before Christmas Train Set is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very frustrating item I so wanted to love this train, but it laughed in my face every step of the way. First, I had to return it once because several of the track pieces were bent at their connection point and didn't set properly. The train would go around a few times, giving me hope, and then derail. Second, the knuckle couplers do not hold the cars together. Again, it would go around giving me hope, and then fly apart. Not wanting to give up on the train, I figured out how to remove those couplers and use the loop couplers provided, and then applied a twist tie to keep the cars together. That actually worked. I had a solid day where the train gave me joy, but yesterday the engine began to slow down as if it was applying brakes to itself. I looked inside to see if I had missed a tiny engineer. I had not. I've tried everything and have been unable to troubleshoot this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hard to use I have always loved the idea of a train around the tree. This train is beautiful but is the most frustrating thing i have ever purchased. It does not stay on the track and is ridiculously difficult to get the wheels aligned back on the track every time they fall off (which happens constantly). If my son didn't love this so, i would have already returned it for my sanity...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Train for train collectors I was just looking for a train to go under my tree and saw this one. It looks nice online, but it's huge and a pain to put together. Couldn't get the tracks to lay right with the crossing gate I brought. Messed with it for about a total of 3 hours and finally decided to send it back. If you are a train collector, it's probably great. If you just want a simple train running under your tree, get something else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Train not up to speed I am sad to report on setting up my new train, a major clip was missing from the engine therefore could not attach the additional cars. Although we did run the engine all by itself we then noticed that the drops of steam oil did not work. The physical directions say to add 3 drops, the CD says to add 7 drops but either way no steam comes forth from engine. Compassionate Rep at FG has issued a new train to be sent within one week with a return label to return the original set. Thanks FG for your product return service with such efficiency. Looking forward to full steam ahead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice set, kids love it This is a good quality train that is a huge hit with the kids. I bought the whole kit and kaboodle- set with the two extra cars and extra track. Definitely get the extra track, what's in the box is just an oval. Setup was manageable and good fun with my kids. It's not plug and play but the setup is part of the experience I think. Setup tip- use the plastic clips to secure the pieces of track together. It took me a little while to see the value in that. Have not been able to figure out how to turn on the steam yet but am googling it now. Took a star off because of the cost only. It's pricey, but I'm glad I got it. If you're on the fence I would pull the trigger. Frivolous? Unnecessary? Absolutely. Awesome? Oh yeah.
