    been out for several years now, good set, runs great, can be powered by either rails or overhead. the set comes with the 2 loco's (1 powered, 1 dummy), 1 coach, 1 diner and 1 business car. you can also by the 2 loco's (always together, never alone) and the cars seperatly, as well as get additional cars for the consist.

    they do require 22" curves, don't even attempt to run them on anything less, they WILL derail on 18" curves.
