Here comes the awesome heavy-haul train. It’s busy at the lego city goods yard. The welder is carrying out some last minute repairs on the tracks while the driver and engineer do the final checks on the powerful diesel engine. Climb aboard the giant, sliding crane, lower the hook and carefully lift the heavy helicopter onto the flatbed wagon. Then take control of the rugged backhoe and gather the heavy bricks together while the crane operator scoops them up and drops them into the hopper wagon. When all the cargo is aboard, load up the backhoe and you’re ready to roll… “all aboard.” this tough motorized train with an 8-channel, 7-speed infrared remote control can haul just about anything. Includes 5 minifigures with assorted accessories: A train driver, engineer, welder, crane operator and a backhoe driver.

This set arrived mid-2015 and MAY be a short-term release. The main City-theme train sets are 60051 and 60052, and if history is any guide, those two sets are on a 2014-2017 cycle, while this set, 60098, is a more limited release that may be available through part of 2016. MSRP is $199.99 and it appears that Lego has limited the number of retail outlets.
This is a European style freight train. The set itself is reminiscent of Lego's yellow freight train from 2010 (#7939). The cabs on the double-ended engine rotate upward so that you can place mini-figures inside. The engine features blue-tinted glass and handrails along the side. The infrared receiver and battery pack fit inside the body, while one of the bogies is motorized. There is simple flatcar carrying a yellow backhoe/loader. There is a very nifty short brown hopper that carries round 1x1 bricks. There is a small door on the side for emptying the hopper. Next is a short flatcar carrying a tiny helicopter. There is a trackside structure that includes a sliding bucket crane and ground-level hopper. You can insert workers into the loader, helicopter, and crane. The set includes 16 curves and 12 straights (16 curves make a circle, so this gets you a small oval). There is a rudimentary level crossing with signals (but no guards). Finally, the set has five mini-figure workers, one of them a woman. The fact that there is at least one female in overalls is progress for Lego, but I'd like to see the ratio improve. Girls love trains too.
Some parents are going to be measuring this set against 60051 and 60052. Truly, you can't go wrong with any of them. I always say that trains are magical, and even if kids throw together a bunch of uncoordinated bricks on top of a train motor, they end up loving it, running it fast and crashing it into things. Set 60051 is the least expensive of all these, and it is a fast looking train that can be the setting for lots of passenger-travel narratives. I very much like 60052 because it has a very classic gantry crane, and it includes two points (switches). This set, 60098, has a lot of fans, however, because the helicopter, crane and loader give it lots of storylines. If you do go with 60098, think about adding a set of switches (#7895 MSRP $15.99) and a track pack (#7499 MSRP $19.99). If you want to go further, you can add a set of lights (8870 MSRP $6.49, typically found at Lego). The engine is designed to accept the lights.
60098 is an expensive set, but it does have everything you need to get going. The Power Functions motors and infrared controls are solid performers that have been around since 2009-10. These are modular pieces that fit into most of the Lego trains. As a sanity saving measure, I highly recommend upgrading to the expensive lithium ion battery, #8878, which is usually available directly from Lego for MSRP of 49.99. The lithium ion battery lasts a good long time and you will save yourself the frustration of removing the AAA battery box from the train to refill with new AAAs.
The City-line trains are not difficult builds, but I always say that the degree of parental assistance really depends more on how much experience your child has with Lego rather than age.
