Unlike most people, I found this to be a very nice addition to my large collection of train LEGO sets, so I got two! One for the Hidden side theme, and one for the trains ONLY theme. GOOD JOB LEGO. Can't wait for early June 2020 Hidden Side Sets!!!!

I 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.
While 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.
