A couple of official pictures of the new city trains have finally been revealed, showing the new passenger train (60197) as well as the new cargo train (60198). If the passenger’s set didn’t excite me too much for several reasons, I must say that the new cargo train left me quite curious and anxious to put my hands on it!
The passenger train will bring around seven hundred bricks and will feature also the usual small station, a light sign as well as four mini-figures. The cargo train is considerably bigger with more than a thousand and two hundred pieces and will also present a cargo truck, five mini-figures, a forklift and a new control tower. And, of course, plenty of new details and feature to enjoy, namely the new wagon with a crane!
The Heavy Cargo Transport is a new set that has just hit stores and definitely one of my favorites in the 2018 City wave. It’s not very big, featuring two hundred and ninety six pieces but it surely has some great stuff to enjoy.
As you can see, the set presents a long truck with an articulated trailer (besides the attaching mechanism), quite unusual in Lorries, an Helicopter as the cargo and two mini-figures ( the driver and the heli’s pilot) with some assorted accessories that includes walkie-talkies, a toolbox and a small tank with fuel.
Here is a nice city set for those who have the older Logging Truck set (60059). The Forest Tractor is a new 2018 set with exactly one hundred and seventy five pieces and shows besides the green Tractor, a single mini-figure and some accessories such as a couple of trunks, a chain saw and a small tree.
I like this tractor. It’s sturdy, capable of handling with the trunk’s weight and best of all, it has a nice winch with claws that can easily grab the wood. The engine is placed at the front and the cabin is particularly big, all made of glass with several handlers on the inside not only for the winch but also for the vehicle itself.
The Cargo Terminal is a new City set that will hit stores next June, during the next wave of releases. The exact piece count in not know but I would say that looking at the set box, it should have around the six hundred pieces which makes it reasonably big.
As you can see, the set features a lot to enjoy: a new cargo truck with a trailer, a red forklift, a sort of warehouse to store pallets, a small building with a barrier, a blue winch car to move the big truck containers and finally four mini-figures (one driver for each vehicle and the reception girl) with assorted accessories.
2017 Nuremberg Toy Fair, in Germany, has just started and with it a lot of information about new Lego set is gradually surfing in the Internet, particularly, my Favorite Lego theme, City, that immediately caught my attention, with some awesome news to show.
