Lego 10259 – Winter Village Station

Here is absolutely one of my next acquisitions and probably the one that I’m more excited for. The new winter Village is a new Creator Expert Railway Station with around nine hundred pieces and plenty of nice winter details and full Christmas spirit, so typical of these seasonal sets.

The set, as you can see, shows a beautiful railroad station with four straight track pieces and a level crossing with two barriers, a yellow vintage bus, five mini-figures – a pleasant quantity for a creator set –   that include a bus driver, a barista, a grandmother, a child and a ticket agent, and a couple of always useful trees.Lego-10259-Winter-Village-Station-creator-expert-5

The station is absolutely beautiful. With a Continue reading

Lego 10254 – Winter Holiday Train

Lego 60098- The Heavy Haul Train Official Pictures

The official pictures of the new city Heavy Haul train have finally become available on Lego images servers. The train was already known for a while but as always, I think that is very pleasant to see the official pics, especially if you’re a Lego train fan.

My first thoughts were reproduced here , and overall I keep the same opinion, for those who have the yellow cargo train (7939) or are familiar with it, the set definitely seems like a big disappointment, the locomotives are globally the same and it seems that Lego only grabbed the yellow one and painted it in red.

On the other hand, the flat carriages Continue reading

Lego 60098 – Heavy Haul Train

The first images of the new Heavy Haul Train have been surfing in the internet thanks to a Brickset User L@go that seems to be at Lego world Copenhagen. It’s always quite pleasant to see a new city train however, this time, I must say that I’m a bit disappointed for two reasons: first, the locomotive is a replica of the yellow 7939 (I expected something different…) and second, two of the wagons have once again a flat bed platform.

Looks like, at the first glance, that the train will have three wagons, besides the red locomotive, that will include a ore transporter and a couple of flat bed wagons that will carry a small helicopter and a backhoe and, of course, a reasonable number of railway tracks. Rumors mention that there might be a crane to load the ore into the wagon, which is a strong possibility at least according to one of the pictures.

Having the look at the red train, the similarities Continue reading
