A great way to start
By wtcasper April 1, 2015
When you're starting from scratch, Bachmann's Rail Chief is a great way to go. The GP 40 included in this ready-to-run set is one of the best performing HO locomotives I have ever owned. The set includes everything you will need to start enjoying this fantastic model railroading hobby.

Good starter kit
By jeremy.s.michels1 October 28, 2014
This is a good beginner kit for someone just wanting to get into the hobby. The kit comes with Bachmanns E-Z track which is only really compatible with said E-Z track. It does allow for the track to be set up for a short period of time and then put away for someone who cant keep a permanent layout. The set is DC, so any extra engines you get need to also be DC.

My Thoughts on Bachmann's Rail Chief Train Set
By JesusFreak March 12, 2015
I was pleased with the simplicity of this set's speed changer, with the quality of the engine's paint job, and with the cheap price of this set. Not only did I get the train, three cars, and a caboose; but I also received a circle of track and packets of passengers, signs, telephone poles, and a signal bridge. The train itself can move at varying speeds both forwards and backwards. The only problems I have seen with this set are loose wheels on the cars and springs popping off the knuckle couplers. Both of these problems, I believe can be avoided with gentle treatment. Overall, this set is perfect for beginners and experienced railroaders alike.

amazing
By rp2 January 18, 2017
The cars and locomotive have a good size. Tracks fit nicely together. Also not to fast to where if going full speed the train will derail. SUPER FUN
