- in 14 daysAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Awesome looking trainmoggy001 | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI agree with the previous reviewer in that the new train wheels without metal axle are quite rubbish. I think their advantage is simply that they are much easier for younger kids to put together. But then the new couplers (non-magnetic) are a fiddle so that negates the above. Otherwise, this set is quite fun. It looks awesome in my opinion and provides a decent amount of playability. Pretty straight-forward to build so will suit a diverse range of builders. I love trains so this had to be added to my collection, but I should warn that it requires quite a big mod to motorise it. This was also the first of the hidden side sets that i have built and so far I like the theme. The overall feel of the theme is well designed and the characters are fantastic. The augmented reality app is pretty cool, and although it became boring for me quite quickly I think it would entertain a younger audience well.Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Build Time: 2 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Ghost Train Express
- in about 9 hoursAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Disappointing part choicesCremilar1 | 25-34Purchased for: SelfWhile I can't say much about the app, what I can say is the choice of parts is disappointing. The old train axles are gone :( The new train wheels are very resistant, lots of friction when used with a motor. :( There's only one magnet coupler, yet several of these new ones which are fiddly and awkward to use :( Disappointed LEGO, very disappointed, The lack of trains made my lego is bad enough, but now if newer trains have these new wheels and axle-less wheels then it'll be very poor for the train fans.August 8, 2019Matt, Customer ServiceThank you for your review, and I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed in this set. Unlike some LEGO® trains, the Ghost Train Express wasn't designed with motors or motion in mind. We definitely recommend exploring the features of the app as well to bring out the exciting 'Hidden Side' of this train!

- in 7 daysAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0It's fun but...ickiepoo | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: DaughterIt's a fun but there are deficiencies. 1. Only comes with 1 magnetic coupler so it's not really compatible with our other Lego trains. 2. When motorized, engine is fairly tipsy in turns 3. Engine construction is a bit too flimsy for regular wing deployment. (The kids break it easily) I would not recommend if you are a train veteran looking for train parts.
Response from LEGO SHOPOctober 7, 2019Keith, Customer ServiceHey there, thanks for your review! While this set can be motorized or combined with other trains using some ingenuity, it's primarily designed as a standalone playset, complemented by the LEGO® Hidden Side™ app experience. If you're interested in building motorized trains, we'd recommend one of our other train sets, like 60197, 60198, or 71044.
