Holiday gifts today can at times feel a bit too tech oriented. Everything seems to require updates or have some accompanying app or doodad. Even the most innocuous gifts now have the prefix ‘smart’ slapped on it. Thankfully, that isn’t the case with this classic John Deere LionChief Steam Train set. Farm from it.
This 5 car model train us pulled along the included track (1 terminal, two 10 inch straight sections, and 8 curved 036 FasTrack pieces) by an electric 0-8-0 locomotive that comes with an engineer and fireman figure and puffs out steam and puts out audio through the RailSounds RC system. The five cars include a gondola, caboose, and flatcar with two die cast John Deere tractors fastened to it. Whether you’re a model train enthusiast yourself or just trying to introduce the kids in your immediate or extended family to the joys of spending time doing something other than sitting in front of a screen, this is a great pick that they’ll be sure to appreciate. Price is set at $315. [Purchase]
