New train 3677

Though we don't cover them in detail on FBTB, we all still love our Castle, Pirates, and Space LEGO too.

New train 3677

Again first seen on Eurobricks...seems there's another new train on it's way...spotted and confirmed by LEGO employees @ LegoWorld 2011 in I think Copenhagen?

Here's the link to the original thread on EB, you'll have to read into the thread a bit where it stops to be speculation on MOCs to a real actual incoming product.

Really like the green version of the Maersk train...

I really like the engine but I'm not fond of the cars at all. The relatively simple red/grey scheme looks nice. I think the boxcar would be better if it was on a standard (or maybe it's no longer the standard) 24 stud baseplate. The crane car is just ehh. If I go for an upcoming train set I think I'll grab the Maersk. Really though I'd just like to see another set of cars and engine options like the My Own Train group so I could pick and choose.

I agree with you, but I think the intention is for this to be a railyard/track repair set - and those trains in real life are quite a bit smaller than the big traditional trains - about this size.

Hopefully it'd make for a smaller MSRP? Really depends on what they include with it - what makes the current cargo train set so expensive is the Power Functions equipment and the additional track

More detailed pictures are also available on QuéLUG's Flickr account, since its designer, Pierre Normandin, was kind enough to bring it with him at QuéLUG's last meeting in April.

If you look closely, you'll see that this set contains this piece in a new color: dark bluish gray.

Toys'R'Us has it $160, one American member on Eurobricks even got his in the mail today. Not sure if it's a TRU exclusive or not, my local B&M lego store was clueless about it.

It's now up on Shop at Home. It's also supposed to be available in brick-and-mortar stores as of August 1st.

It's the one of the train set motors, like this guy. The only one that uses a standalone motor is the Emerald Night, but it needs the XL motor for the torque and even then it's sub-prime.
