Lionel 31953

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ERIE LACKAWANNA HOBO STEAM SET WITH 4-6-4 HUDSON LOCOMOTIVE put under the tree (also listed on the set page)


  • Compared to lower cost starter sets, this set features the famous Hudson 4-6-4 which is a new, larger, more durable and more powerful heavy duty locomotive
  • The all metal engine is built just like the old days with no shortcuts like using plastic. It will be running 50 or more years from now and is highly recommended
  • The engine has Lionel's famous remote controlled forward, neutral and reverse system, puffing smoke, whistle, and brillant headlight
  • In addition, the tender and all cars have die-cast metal sprung trucks and operating couplers, and the Red Caboose has interior illumination as well
  • A premium starter set with a new 80 watt extra powerful transformer which will handle many extra accessories and expansion of the layout
  • Bonus features include a powered handcar which can follow the train or which can scoot around it's own seperate track; a hobo campfire with flickering campfire, 5 pewter figures and cooking pot; a gondola car with a cop chasing a hobo, and the Phoebe Snow Box Car with double opening doors where children will store and ship many hidden treasures
  • Complete and ready to run. No assembly required; just snap the track together anywhere in the house, (on the living room rug or under the Christmas Tree), plug in the transformer and let the fun begin
  • Be sure to order our 1-120541 uncoupling and unloading kit, required to operate the couplers so cars may be automatically uncoupled from the train while moving or standing still
  • Or be a superhero and purchase our deluxe gift Keystone package (6-30037) with 6 extra gifts to wrap and put under the tree (also listed on the set page)
