The Ultimate Christmas Tree Decoration

With Christmas rapidly approaching and having some vouchers for a well known High Street & online store burning a hole in my wallet I decided to finally buy the Santa Express set. So glad that I did! This is a charming Christmas decoration. Straight out of the box the set is very easy to put together and the train was running around the tree in just a few minutes. Younger children will probably need a little help from an adult to set the track up. The loco whilst being `basic` is nicely decorated and runs very smoothly and quietly. The open wagon with presents is the nicer of the two supplied wagons, The reindeer wagon is quite light so the cat finds it quite easy to knock over! I would have liked the loco to be DCC ready as I`m not sure I have the skills to hard wire a decoder. I will probably just keep the set for running around the tree every Christmas.

Nice little set

I bought this for my little nephew, who is train mad, and I want to keep him that way. I have a Thomas and another 0-6-0 and bits and bobs so it will be a great improvement over those battery operated kiddy trains. Can't wait to see his face at Christmas.
