This is such a fantastic piece. It is a large set from the talking railway series. This set can be used with the special gold magnet trains (2 are included but others can be bought) or with normal trains.
If using the gold magnet trains special train specific messages are played when the trains pass through the mine. Other trains will get generic messages. This set is immaculate and comes complete and with box and packing boxes so would be perfect as a gift. The trains do have some slight marks from play as shown in the photos.
The station also makes noises when the chimney is pressed. The buildings and and mine are immaculate. I think this set is amazing and is so much fun when used with Stanley and Thomas who are included.
These sets are hard to come by especially in such good condition. This comes from a smoke and pet free home.
