118 Electronic Train is a set released in 1968. It contains 99 pieces, and consists of the following parts.

  • A black motor
  • A black holder for 3 1.5V batteries
  • A white microphone block
  • A transparent block containing a circuit board with electronics
  • Two cables with colour-coded plugs
  • A plate with a hole fitting around the motor
  • Various bricks, wheels and couplings
  • A whistle

When everything is put together and connected correctly, you get a locomotive with tender. When you blow the whistle or make another loud noise (e.g., clapping your hands) the train starts. Another loud noise will make it stop.


  • This set is the same as 138 Electronic Train, except this version can only go forward, while set 138 has forward and reverse.
