Recommendation: meh 4.3 / 5 from 60 reviews

A kid's review: This is an infrared receiver designed to go with either of the Lego Power Functions infrared (IR) remote controls. It has a frequency switch (i.e. Imagine you have two Lego Winter Holiday Trains. Set one receiver to one frequency [i.e. frequency 1] and the other receiver to another frequency [i.e. frequency 2]. Set the remote control to one of these two frequencies [i.e. frequency 1], and set the desired speed. Then set the remote control to the other frequency [i.e. frequency 2], and set the desired speed. Now, simply by switching between the two frequencies, you can control both trains.). All in all, a great product.
