10254 Winter Holiday Train Announced

Christmas may still be over 100 days away but LEGO have decided that August is the perfect time to announce their latest Christmas set. Introducing 10254 Winter Holiday Train.

10254 Winter Holiday Train 01

Rather than releasing another building LEGO have taken inspiration from 10173 Holiday Train and gone with a festive vehicle this year.

The set features 734 pieces including enough track to make a complete circle – perhaps around the base of your Christmas tree. While not included the set can be upgraded with Power Functions to have a fully operating train.

There are also 5 minifigures included; 3 adults and 2 children.

The Australian product page isn’t live yet but reports are that the Australian RRP will be $149.99. Expect a VIP release in mid-September.

Read on for the full press release, designer video and gallery below.
