    Looks great! But I would have preferred a smaller scale with a second passenger carriage.

      I agree, I was hoping for a working model at Lego train scale. Surely one of the Lego youtubers will MOC one for us… Given how many pieces must be consumed to build the track, this is extremely expensive when compared, say, to the Disney Train and Station ($A500, motorised, two carriages, complete station).

    It looks like I won’t be picking up this one…….
