The Polar Express
The Polar Express, the classic childrens story written by Chris Van Allsburg in 1985, came to life on movie screens around the world beginning Thanksgiving 2004 in a film by Robert Zemeckis, starring Academy Award® winner, Tom Hanks. Using ground-breaking, motion-capture animation, the story of a young boys struggle to solve the mystery of Santa Claus plays out on a train called the Polar Express. Led by a massive Berkshire locomotive, the train transports wide-eyed kids on a hair-raising adventure to the North Pole.
Now, you can own the Polar Express train featured in both the best-selling book, and this Christmas seasons sure-hit movie, as only Lionel can create it. Painstakingly designed to be true to the original, this exclusive Lionel train set features a die-cast metal Berkshire steam locomotive with a new, larger pilot, headlight lens cap and unique whistle. The engine and tender are painted in a dark, matte finish to complete the image.
Following the locomotive and tender are two lighted coach cars. The observation car features a new rounded observation deck, just like in the movie! Silhouettes in the windows depict scenes from the movie including the scary marionette car, and the joyful coach car where the kids get their fill of hot chocolate and candy.
The main characters from the movie are included as articulated figures with turning heads, movable arms, bendable waists and jointed knees. They can be posed and placed on areas of the locomotive, tender and passenger cars to replicate your favorite scenes from the movie.
There is no better childrens book, no better movie director, no better actor, and no better train company to bring you all of the fun, excitement and drama of the Polar Express. Do not miss out on this Lionel O gauge exclusive. Do you believe in Santa? We do!
