I see a lot of awesome SNOT work! Very sleek design, although I'm not fond of the orange interior.

It actually looks pretty cool. It reminds me of those Japenese (if I remember) trains. I was expecting grey to be it's main color though.

Interesting set. If the price was a little lower, I would consider purchasing it. Maybe it will go on sale a few months after it comes out.

That set looks really great, though $130 seems like a little much without a motor.

I'm not a huge trains fan, but oh my gosh that is some awesome SNOT designs on that. And orange is always a good color to have more of. Minifigs aren't bad. Plus, female conductor = cool. (Even tho they just switched out a standard female head for a standard male one, still shows they're trying.):music:

Is the hair piece for the female conductor new? I don't recall seeing one like it before.Also, maybe I just can't tell how it's put together, but that white arrow build looks like it would slide out the second the train tilts. It does look nice, though.

Needless to say, this set is tempting. However I already have plans to use actual model trains to make the model railway I have planned.

Nice set, even if it looks a little bit empty to me. I love the orange on it.

It's from the Prince of Persia theme of 2010, and has been in assorted LEGO City and Direct-to-Consumer sets since then. I got my only copy of that hair piece from the modular Pet Shop.The hair piece on the woman in the blue shirt is actually newer, having emerged just last year for Luke Skywalker in the LEGO Star Wars theme.Anyway, there are a lot of incredible things about this set. Great pieces, audacious building techniques, and an excellent likeness of the French TGV trains on which it is clearly based. After not having any new LEGO train sets this year, this is a great way for TLG to show that they still care about LEGO train fans.Also, the price is remarkably reasonable. Expensive, yes, but just look how many pieces the set has! The fact that it doesn't come with a motor probably has to do with the fact that they're encouraging AFOLs to buy two to make a full train, and they want to keep the price low enough that doing so is a feasible option. Including a motor, infrared controller, infrared receiver, and battery box in each engine would drive the price up to the point that even buying one might seem daunting, let alone buying a second.
