And it’s awesome looking! I have a fascination with trains that I can’t quite explain. I don’t have a desire to have a huge train layout, or even to motorize them, but I do love the Lego trains.  I’ve bought several of them here and there. I think I really like the size and scale of them.  And I feel they use the latest and greatest building techniques. You can learn a LOT about building from these Lego train sets.

This picture shows how awesome this set would look if you combined two of them.  I probably won’t go that far, but might pick up a second engine.  Lego really should consider selling them individually.

As we’ve come to expect, this Lego train has a very detailed interior.  It looks like there is even a bar and bartender…
