Looking to get started with the very best? Introducing the largest and most advanced Lionel train set—the Lionel Empire Builder! This train set features the best of everything you need to get started in Lionel O gauge model railroading. With a powerful ZW transformer, a TMCC CAB-1 Remote Controller, and a huge O-72 FasTrack layout with two switches, you have all the makings of a sophisticated layout.

A premier layout deserves a train with all the latest innovations. Taking the lead is the magnificent Lionel New York Central L-A2 Mohawk with TrainMaster Command Control and the RailSounds 5.0 sound system. Listen for the unmistakable cadence of the steam chuffs—four chuffs per revolution—and the realistic whistle and crew dialog. These effects are controlled using your CAB-1 Remote Controller, included with this set.

A string of top-of-the-line Standard O rolling stock follows this detailed locomotive. These steam-era favorites include a milk car with plated interior tanks, a flatcar with a wooden deck, and a die-cast metal hopper and caboose.

The Lionel Empire Builder also features a TMCC Crane Car and a Boom Car with Crane Sounds. Use the CAB-1 Remote Controller to rotate the cab, launch the outriggers, raise the boom, and operate the two hooks. Listen for the authentic steam crane sounds and crew dialog.
