The new Power Trains line features motorized toy trains with realistic proportions and detailing, just like the collector versions, but at a budget-friendly price. There are a variety of different train sets in the line, including the Power Trains Auto Loader City set. It includes one train engine, four train cars, an auto loader, two mountain tunnels, 20 accessories, and 28 track pieces that make up 18 feet of track. There are two different train speeds: slow and fast. Just press the button on top of the engine to set the train in motion around the track. There are different switches so kids can change the route of the train. Kids can also stop the train in the middle so kids can use the auto loader to load and unload cargo from the train. Kids can extend the track set with Power Trains Track Packs that come with 12 to 16 pieces of extra track. Power Trains Track Packs are sold separately.
The Power Trains Auto Loader City set is an affordable train set for younger kids. You really can't compare this to a higher-end collectible train set because this plastic set is designed as a beginner set for kids who want a real train set but are too young for the high-end (and more expensive) train sets. This is a great introductory train set for young train enthusiasts.
The Power Trains Auto Loader City is for ages 4 and up.
Two AAA batteries are required but not included.
