G-Gauge version of this. On sale most of the time during BF for $75 at TRU or JCP. But it is plastic, it runs on batteries, and it has no smoke. I am saving for the O-Gauge, i think it is a better investment and it will last long.
Hmmm. I dont care about the plastic (isn't this O gauge plastic?) or the smoke, but batteries sound like a bad idea.
I had the G gauge and it was horrible. Incredibly loud and just cheap looking. I didn't even bother turning it on anymore and then sold it. I snapped up the $162 like new one from here, if it looks like hell I'll send it back. If it looks good I'll be happy. Not enough meat on the bone to resell, but for those of us that actually wanted this set, it's a good deal.
We bought a Used-Good train last month for $171 from Amazon Warehouse Deals. There was slight damage to the packaging - some scratches on the cardboard box. The train set inside was perfectly new, complete, and worked great. There's still one of those at only $152 - even less than I paid! I wouldn't normally buy "used-good" but I would from from Amazon Warehouse Deals.
Used Like new looks like it came back. I just ordered it a minute ago and it said there were still 17 left.
Great deal! I got my son a new one for Christmas this year. Works great! Both the engine and tracks are very high quality. The engine is a metal die cast piece that is very heavy and detailed. This is a set that becomes an heirloom. My old Lionel set was my dad's Christmas present when he was a kid and it will eventually get handed down to my kids.
I have never heard of anyone complaining of the quality of these, are you sure you got the big O gauge set? Or did you get the little ones?
