Wow! What fun! Jan 10, 2007
We love this train! My son is a lego enthusiast and a train enthusiast, so this is great for him. His is six, but with a bit of help, was able to build the whole set. More track is a MUST! We like the ability to be creative - to change the track every time we build it. You have to have more track for that. The remote control has worked great. Be sure you push the forward button more that one time. We were pushing it only once, and it was going so slow, we were disappointed. But then we learned that if you push it multiple times, the speed increases - in fact, the train flies around the track! Amazing! This wasn't in the instructions.

Great incarnation of the Lego Train System Dec 29, 2007
By Jon Akers
I have been collecting Lego trains for nearly thirty years now, and I have to say that this model holds the same magic that that original train thirty years ago held for me. There are certainly improvements in the system, and the way it is powered has changed somewhat, but it still has the same basics.
One thing to note is that the tracks are not compatible with the tracks from the first era of trains, so if you have the old blue tracks you do have to do some funky things in order to combine the two systems together. The trains, however, do fit in the same gauge so if you have a train from one system it work fine on the tracks from the other system.
This is apparently the end of this generation of Lego train, and a new generation is going to be introduced sometime in the next year or two. Apparently the tracks will still be compatible, which is very good news.

Lego's 2006 Cargo Train Oct 04, 2010
By R. Ferguson
Lego delisted this set in late 2009. This set and #7897 were the of the "RC" generation of trains. The prior generation was the 9 volt series which used electrified track. The next (and current) generation is the Power Functions (PF) series which uses updated components (a new motor and new infrared signaling devices). The battery compartment and infrared receiver of the RC generation is a single, large unit; this is unique to 7897 and 7898. Battery power comes from AA batteries. It is not out of the question to modify the old trains with PF elements (to varying degrees of elegance). 9 volt, RC and PF all use the same gauge track, but the 9 volt track is electrified (RC and PF can still use it). Lego still calls its track "RC."
This set is modeled in the style of a small European cargo train. The set has fantastic playability. It includes an engine (most similar to a Deutsche Bahn Class E44), a crane car, a flat car, box car, hopper, small freight truck, forklift, red sports car, and five mini-figures. The set includes two sets of points (switches), twenty pieces of curved track and eight pieces of straight track. The set requires only batteries to be up and running. Even though this set has been superseded by a newer cargo train, it is still one of the best cargo trains that Lego has produced.

Incredible! Wow is an understatement Dec 30, 2007
By Justin Istenes
Our son (5yrs 4mos) is a Lego, vehicle, and train enthusiast. This was the only thing he asked for Christmas. He put everything together himself with VERY little direction from Dad (4 cars he did completely by himself just from the pictorials!). It is lightning FAST, STURDY, and SMOOTH - above and beyond our wildest expectations (other vehicles cranes, loaders, etc were rather delicate more for admiring and not necessarily for playing - but this is made for a 5 year old to PLAY). The remote controller can operate up to 3 trains with one control. Christmas is now 5 days past and my son has only left this train long enough to eat and sleep LITERALLY and that is so unlike him. He is having a blast, and as parents we are marveled at watching his excitement, accomplishment and desire to be creative. This train was WORTH EVERY PENNY - You will not be disappointed! Of all the gadgets, toys and things we have gotten, I've not ever left a review - this I just couldn't ignore - it really is that fantastic. We are looking at getting the Lego passenger train in the near future - it is that awesome. Best of luck.

It really is that cool! Mar 25, 2010
We bought this product for our 8,5, and 3 year old. Although it really would be best for 8 years old and above, all three of my kids love it. They are young, so they break the trains up, but they use the wheels and base to create their own, unique train cars. The electronic/powered engine is great, but secondary for our kids. My little ones would rather just push the trains around and use their imaginations. However, for an older child, the addition of the power engine really would keep their interest as well. Very highly recommended. It is very expensive and I woudln't recommend it unless I really felt it was worth the money.
