The LEGO City: High-Speed Passenger Train is a 610-piece set that builds a motorized, R/C High-Speed Passenger Train, a platform station and a bike. The set comes with 20 rail-track pieces and three LEGO City minifigures of a "train driver," traveler, and a cyclist.
The train features a motorized locomotive that drives forward and backward using the eight-channel, seven-speed IR remote control. It also has a driver's cabin and the passenger cars have removable roofs for putting minifigures inside.
This set and its multiple components give kids everything they need to invent their own train-based stories. It would also make a great addition to a LEGO City display.
The set is intended for kids, ages 6-12, but we think older LEGO fans will like it also.
The directions for this set are excellent and divided into four separate books. It took our Master Builder 90 minutes to build so it will probably take the average builder two to three hours to complete.
The locomotive and remote control require a total of nine, "AAA" batteries, which are not included.
