Top 10 reasons to start and stay with Athearn® trains:

10. Hobby quality
Athearn® train sets are designed to be the basis for a lifelong hobby and only include the best components. This means our train set will last for years to come and not end-up in a closet to be forgotten after a few hours of use.

9. Full featured power pack
Our Trainpak power pack includes accessory terminals to power accessories like remote controlled switches, street lights and building lights. The power pack also has an on/off switch so it does not have to be unplugged to turn off the power.

8. Greater pulling power

A locomotive should pull long trains. With our large motor, all-wheel gear drive and heavy die-cast frame, our locomotive will pull at least 15 freight cars on level track.

7. Smooth performer
Over time, rails require cleaning. Dirty track can cause intermittent electrical contact which means the locomotive may run erratically. To overcome this effect, our locomotives include dual flywheels to keep the motor and wheels spinning. All eight wheels pick-up electricity to ensure optimum current flow.

6. Easy set-up
Simple printed instructions are included in the box for quick and easy set-up.

5. Bachmann® Nickel-Silver E-Z® Track
Bachmann is the worldwide leader of roadbed-style track. This unique track system can be set-up virtually anywhere including carpet, tile, table, etc. The 45" x 36" oval can be expanded with readily available switches, crossings, straight, curves and more. Finally, Nickel-Silver rail conducts electricity better than steel and requires less cleaning.

4. "Iron Horse" train set now DCC Ready
Digital Command Control (DCC) allows multiple trains to operate in any direction, at any speed, on the same track. When you're ready to expand your layout with a DCC control system, just plug-in an 8 or 9-pin DCC decoder and your "Iron Horse" locomotive is ready to go.

3. Ready To Roll® locomotive and freight cars
We use "off-the-shelf" locomotives and freight cars from our Ready To Roll® line. This means they are fully assembled and ready to run out of the box. Instead of being molded in color, all of our models are painted and printed for the most realistic decoration. In addition, our freight cars include metal wheels which roll better than plastic wheels.

2. Everything in one box
The train, power pack, track, hook-up wire, and instructions are all included in the box. The box also doubles as a convenient storage container and includes a carry handle.

1. Up to $107 in savings
If purchased separately the total value of the Warbonnet Set is $275 and the Iron Horse Set is $297. Buying everything together saves $85 and $107 respectively.
