Question by Wishful: How is the Bachmann Big Haulers Red Comet Christmas Train Set? Is it a good train?
I want to buy a train for under our Christmas tree. We have one that I bought at KBToys in the mall, but it was like $ 30 and a piece of junk. The track is hard to snap together and keeps coming apart, the locomotive on the front is battery operated and is not powerful enough to pull the train cars behind it.
I would like to get something a little better, but I don’t want to spend a ton of money this time of year. Is this a good train for about $ 100?
Answer by Mike
The Big Hauler is a fine train set. It needs a very flat area to be run in but other than that you shouldn’t have much trouble with it. I bought one about ten years ago to put under the Christmas tree and we’ve used it on and off ever since.
