Year Information: The regally named locomotive makes easy work of pulling the five wagons included in this excellent starter set. The simple but effective track oval incorporates a level crossing and with the addition of the trackside accessories, which are included, soon has the lucky recipient up and running. But be warned, it will not be long before the imagination is fired up and the urge to extend the layout will result in the purchase of extra track pieces and scenic accessories.
