For more than a century, toy trains and Christmas have been a magical combination. What better way to create your own family's version of a classic tradition than to include this beautifully decorated Christmas set around your tree. Trimmed in traditional Christmas colors, the M.T.H. Christmas Express freight set captures the spirit and fun of model railroading in an affordable train set that will last for years. And when you want to expand your railroad, the rugged, eight-wheel-drive Christmas diesel has all the power you'll need to pull a long string of cars.
Trailing the locomotive are three cars bearing distinctive Christmas paint schemes. As with all of our HO sets, the Christmas Express outfit is compatible with all standard HO trains. This set includes everything you need to begin your model railroading adventure, including a powerful transformer and a large 36" x 45",14-piece Realtrax oval that assembles in minutes and can be placed right on the carpet or floor for a quick, temporary layout.
In addition, the Proto-Sound version of the Christmas Express features CD-quality sounds that will amaze your friends and family. Imagine their faces when the horn blares, the bell clangs, the diesel motor revs up as you advance the throttle, and the conductor announces Santa's next station stop!
