Overnight, LEGO dropped a new announcement. This year, our Winter Villages are going to have a train station. Now that beautiful Winter Holiday Train that many LEGO fans have circulating around Christmas trees in December will have somewhere to stop and collect more passengers.
This set has 902 pieces, and will be available in LEGO Stores and Shop@Home from October 1, with VIP Early Access from September 14th. It will set you back US $79.99 / CA $99.99 / UK £74.99. I’m expecting this to be around AU $125. More details will be here when we get a final Aussie price!
We now know that 10259 Winter Village Station will be retailing in Australia for $119.99. That’s not too bad.
It comes complete with a coffee shop, cute little old style bus, rail crossing with boomgates, and five minifigures. This is a small set at 902 pieces, but it’s bigger than the last three Winter Village sets we’ve had. Nonetheless, I think it could have been made a little bigger. The platform is rather small. There are some nice additions element wise, though. I like the decorative eaves under the main building. These have been seen in five sets since 2015, including 41101 Heartlake Grand Hotel, 10251 Brick Bank and 71042 Silent Mary.
I also really like the balls of snow that are on the tops of the railings. I’ve not seen them before, but if anyone else has, leave a comment below. The clock faces are also a nice touch, and I think we get three of them.
By the looks of things, there will be a few stickers – possibly eight? The two signs on the building, three on the bus, the letter box, and the two triangular signs at the rail crossing. The minifigures include a bus driver, barista, grandma, kid and ticket agent.
The full press release, as well as some other photos are available below. I don’t actually own the train, but for those that do, are you going to buy a copy of the Station? Let me know below.
