Looking for a ready to run toy not scale around the tree train set for a 21/2 year old boy ( and yes, its his father and uncle -- each mid 30s - who will do the playing. Poor kid has about as much chance of running the train as I did my first Christmas. But then I was only 2 months old when Dad got himself -- err, me --- the Lionel set back in 1947.)
Whats out there now in ON3 - ON 30 plastic stuff, or in Lionel type stuff thats reasonably rugged and reasonably priced?
I have been away from the toy train maket so long that I have no idea what's currently available.
