Whether you want to hear it or not, the Holiday Season is fast-approaching, and that’s something I’m dealing with daily as I’m already assembling some seasonal coverage to appear on The Rock Father in the months ahead. Toy Trains have long been a classic staple of the Season, and this year, the folks at Bachmann Trains have teamed with Menards to offer an Exclusive Mountain Master HO Scale Ready-to-Run Train Set geared toward collectors and steam engine railfans. They hit The Rock Father with full details, all of which can be viewed below.
2013 Menards Mountain Master Train Set:
Powered by a mighty Santa Fe 0-6-0 locomotive with operating smoke and headlight, this train will conquer the highest peaks to deliver its important cargo. The Mountain Master 155-piece set includes all the miniature people, buildings, and structures you’ll need to begin your own railroad adventure. Available exclusively at your local Menards® Store.
This ready-to-run train set includes:
- 0-6-0 steam locomotive and tender with operating smoke and headlight
- Menards® Limited Edition plug-door box car
- Open quad hopper
- Single-dome tank car
- Off-center caboose
- Body-mounted E-Z Mate® couplers
- 47″ x 38″ oval of snap-fit E-Z Track®, including 12 pieces of curved track, 1 piece of straight track, and 1 plug-in terminal rerailer
- Suburban station
- Signal bridge
- 48 railroad and street signs
- 36 telephone poles
- 48 assorted figures

One important thing to keep in mind since I cover toys for the whole family is that these electric train sets are geared toward ages 14+. The Menards Exclusive Mountain Master Train Set should start hitting stores in about a month or so.
