LEGO train sets and LEGO Disney sets are both highly popular genres for collectors. So, it makes sense that the company would bring the two together with the Disney Train and Station 71044 Lego Set. Disney fans can build an impressive locomotive and station with many of the characters that they love.
Build the iconic station and train ready for Mickey and the crew to great the first passengers.
The train itself is an impressive piece of design that is modelled on the Disney Parks train. You can the old-fashioned locomotive engine with its light and funnel, the coal tender and two carriages. Passengers can travel in style under the cute canopies of either the passenger car or the parlour car. When you add in the Powered U components and connect to the app, you can set the train running along the 20-piece track. This circuit should allow designers to create a fun ride past the station and other related buildings in their collection.
The station is just as important for the story and design of this build. This is where most of the hard work begins. The exterior of the building is reminiscent of the Disney Park with cute detailing in the brickwork and flags waving proudly from the roof. When we set foot inside we see a series of room and features for the staff and any passengers. When you walk in you will see the ticket counter where you can purchase your pass for the train. Stylish details in the posters and other decorative elements help to set the scene. There is also a cafe area for refreshments while you wait for the train to arrive.
Of course, none of this would work without highly-trained staff on hand to sell the tickets and keep it all running smoothly. In this case, you can rely on Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip and Dale. The two chipmunks are smartly dressed ready to sell and inspect the passes. Mickey seems dressed to drive the train for a punctual journey.
The Disney Train and Station 71044 Lego Set brings the fun of the real station to life.
Don’t assume that this 12+ Disney set is going to be easy. This is an almost 3000 piece LEGO set thanks to all the details in the train and the station. But, it is worth the time and effort to create this attractive replica and open the doors to new adventures with Mickey and the gang.
