Toy FairWe do love our trains around here, but one thing that’s important is the parental supervision when it comes to the electric models. With that in mind, my interest was piqued by the first-ever battery-operated train sets to be release by the folks at Bachmann Trains – the HO scale passenger United Railways Express and freight Fast Rail Flyer. Both are debuting this week at the New York Toy Fair, and you can see some specs and images below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine…

“Both feature a diesel engine with locomotive, whistle, and bell sounds plus an operating headlight. These ready-to-run sets come complete with a 63″ x 45” oval of snap-together track and include either two passenger cars, station, crossing gates, and signals (United Railways Express) or three freight cars, crossing gates, signals, and trees (Fast Rail Flyer). Just add batteries (no controller or power pack needed) and you are ready for hours of railroading fun!” Each set carries an MSRP of just $29.00, and requires two AA batteries for operation (not included).
