Worst Lego Train Set
This train set is slightly more powerful and faster than the last generation, as such the batteries run out faster but this is not a major issue as you can always replace with new batteries. Now the main problems..... Bluetooth is a pain to use, it takes a few seconds to pair and you need to pair it every time you start and hold the buttons for 5 seconds to turn off, try explain this to young children and their friends. The remote control is awkward and not user friendly, why would Lego remove the dials and replace them with buttons to control power?!
I understand Lego has to redesign it without an IR receiver to cut cost but cutting cost and make a product inferior than last generation is simply unacceptable.
Pity one of the best looking train is one of the worst one in terms of playability.

Good set, needs a tail cart.
Hello everyone,

The set is very good and the train really looks great when it's actually built. It took me about 3 hours to complete. The pairing with the remote control was not an issue, after following the tutorial video. You only need to do it once, then the remote and the receiver will recognize themselves every time you turn them on.

I also believe that this particular train really needs an extra tail cart to look symmetrical and I'd like to share my experience with adding it, without purchasing a second set.

I contacted the Lego Customers Service at the beginning of August, shortly after the set was released. I was pleased to receive immediately a list of parts but, unfortunately, they were not what I was looking for.

Maybe it was too early in the process, but the Customer Service was not able to provide a list of the all the actual parts to build the cart as you see it in my picture.

I ended up compiling the list by myself, based on the parts needed to build the engine and modifying the wheels assembly in order to remove the motor. It took a while on the phone to go through all the parts and the required quantities, but luckily that process was not too bad as all the personnel at Lego Customers Service I dealt with was really helpful and, after the issue with the initial list, made sure I got taken care and received what I needed.

Some parts are really new and it took about 10 days to get them all from the factory in Denmark, but I'm very happy with the final result. Cart could be further modified to add more windows and seat, as you have plenty of room inside without the battery pack / receiver, but I chose to have it looking like the engine cart.

I would recommend the Lego Engineers to come up with an actual list of parts to be purchased or, even better, to have a set with end cart directly available for sale, as it takes quite a bit to come up with the list and it's easy to make mistakes or forget some pieces.

Sorry for the long post, hopefully it will be helpful to those who wish to add the cart.

Best of both worlds
My son, who's 5, saved for this train set for months. He did tons of chores, sold a bike, traded in his Halloween candy, and cashed in his piggy banks. He is so glad to have worked so hard for it and says it was worth the wait. This set is the synthesis of his two favorite toys: LEGOs and trains. It is a really cool set. In his words: "This train is one big LEGO set!! This is one great LEGO set and I love it!!"

The build is fun, the remote is easy to use and the train runs fast and smooth. We will get years of enjoyment out of this. Get the extra track and stock up on AAA batteries--the set takes 10.

Finally got a passenger train to go with all the cargo trains! My son really enjoys using his iPhone to control this thing as well. It is great having the sounds to go with it!

Everything is awesome.... with this train
This set is a must have for fans of the rails. If you would like to see where I believe the inspiration for this train came from look for a video on YouTube called Eurostar from the air.
I like this set so much I bought two so I could have a full length model of the Eurostar, in lego form that is. Its not exact but it looks close enough for me.
Overall fun to build and watch cruise around the rails. Only downside is not with the set itself really. We just want more trains and train track options like the older sets that had flashing lights/signs or lampposts for a train yard, and the ever elusive crossover track, this time if you were to make it needs an upgrade of the tracks being able to switch independently from one another.

Agree with other review, need another passenger car! Add another car or make another kit, that would be perfect!

Something is Missing
The set went together easily in an afternoon. However I feel it needs a second engine car at the back to make it look finished. I was disappointed to see the Led headlights 88005 are an optional extra and found the bluetooth pairing sequence a little confusing initially. The LED flashing sequence and colours are not explained anywhere. Purple - ready to pair. White flashing - scanning channels for other unit. Solid colour - units paired.

Mixed feelings
I have been a big fan of LEGO trains since my first set (171) in 1974. I have every generation of train from 1966 right through to this new train which arrived today.

Good points:

Up to LEGO's usual standard of detail and build complexity. Nice use of colours and overall a rather good train and an excellent addition to my collection. The usual selection of Minifigs and accessories and nice details like the signal and the small 'halt' - you can't really describe it as a 'platform'. Comparable to the 7938 City Passenger Train in terms of style, build and what you get in the box. Essentially a 'revised' version of a fairly similar train. The oval of track (complete circle plus 8 straights) is the usual minimum for a 'complete' train set to get you going and, fortunately, the track is the same as the older Power Functions track so if you have other sets, you can simply expand your layouts with ease.

Bad points:

Very few, really. I'm slightly concerned that for what is essentially a similar train set to the 7938 in terms of concept and content is much more expensive (>50%) that its predecessor. Certainly not a 'pocket money' toy. I appreciate that it has a whole new control system (using Bluetooth and 'Powered Up!' instead of the earlier infra-red Power Functions) which means that for those who use tablets or smartphones (I don't!) then an app is available, but the incompatibility with the previous trains means means having to juggle multiple controllers in order to control your entire collection. I have invested heavily in Power Functions, over the last six years, motorising both my Maersk Train and Horizon Express as well as retro-fitting many of my earlier trains with Power Functions.

Perhaps Powered Up! will have future options that enhance the functionality of the trains? I eagerly await some lights (as the original Power Functions units are not compatible) as the cab of the engine appears to have provision for retrofitting headlights. Just controlling a single train motor as it stands right now limits the possibilities somewhat.

Bearing in mind I have no intention to go down the 'smart device route' and will be exclusively using the supplied remote, I find that the controller is very hard to use. The much smaller size of the unit and the small speed +/- buttons rather than the rotary wheels of the Power Functions controller might be great for smaller children, but as a middle-aged man with hands like a bunch of bananas, I find the new controller very un-ergonomic and far too small for my liking.

In summary, a perfectly good train, but I have major reservations about the control system. I suspect I will 'downgrade' it to PF to keep it compatible with my existing collection and make it easier for me to operate. I am sure there are those who will embrace Bluetooth and will possibly want to go the other way and retrofit older trains with this newer system, so I will be interested to see what sort of price point LEGO will pitch a new Smart Hub and PU Train Motor. I suspect it will be more expensive to convert older trains to the new standard than it is to buy the Power Functions kit to convert this train back to infra-red. I await developments (and lights!) with interest.

The Perfect Train Set!
I saw some of the other reviews complaining about that the rear car, as it do not feel like a true train because it needs another carrier engine to form a closure.
I am sorry to say that this is what makes it perfect for collectors.
I love the fact that Lego actually listened to fans and provided us with this set, I own 8 of the previous version, then I had to go here an there to buy a additional middle cars so that the train looks a bit longer at great cost and time.
In this set I do not have to, Lego did what I was hoping for, I can now retire my old trains, replace it with the new one, buy 2 sets/train and get a true long one, more realistic, and I have more control over what I pay for, I simply love it.
I hope the day comes, when they do the same for the road tiles and train tracks, were they sell same types together, not forcing to buy a straight road with a T-Junction or a curved. I also hope they introduce larger roads tiles (like autobahn) and some ramps to build bridge roads, and since they are not adding runways tiles to their airports sets, I hope they introduce some for sale separate.

Awesome
First start with LEGO that can move around, upgrade to LEGO with remote, finally now going towards LEGO control by all or remote control.
Awesome set my kids will Love to play with it.
Only down thing is if only come with more tracks. Max speed Train will flip over, so I also got another set of extended tracks.
