Finally the rumours have been confirmed and the first picture of the Lego Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254) has surfaced thanks to CM4Sci.
This year marks exactly ten years since we last had a Christmas Holiday Train and I’m glad to see this is a brand new design and not a re-release of the previous set (10173). There aren’t many details around at the moment, but it looks like the train is loosely based on the Lone Ranger’s Constitution Train set and is definitely smaller in piece count and carriages compared to its predecessor – cue the sad face.
Other point worth noting it looks like this set may not be motorized which will be a great shame. I guess on the positive note this will make the set more affordable and may have been intentional on LEGO’s part. I guess Youtube will be busy with walkthroughs on how to motorized.
Putting negative points aside the set is still a worthy Christmas themed edition to any LEGO household and I’ll be grabbing one on release. Keep an eye out for early VIP release in September on the LEGO online shop.
