Notes:

This set features the all-new 2-8-4 Berkshire steam locomotive and tender, two coaches and one observation car. The optional add-on cars are shown in the photo on top of the main box. Also included are 3 straight American Flyer FasTrack sections, 12 American Flyer FasTrack curve sections, and one American Flyer FasTrack terminal section. Control is via the transformer and the new FlyerChief system. The locomotive features smoke, sound, and an operating coupler on the tender. The second photo shows the trainset set up. There is a YouTube video of the set running on a DCC layout. This video shows the set-up in a store. If you add more cars to this set and the engine starts to have problems running, it is likely the power pick-ups in the trailing truck not working well. Some have found that if they stretch out the wide base stock spring in an attempt to apply more pressure between the wheels and the rails, the power pickup works better, and the engine is able to handle the extra load.
