I guess this qualifies as licensed. Thanks to the folks over at Brickset for the heads-up.

Looks like the original image at 1000Steine got pulled, but I found it elsewhere (see OP). Just in case this one goes, it looks like the set includes an engine not unlike the GP-38 in 10133 (just in Maersk blue, gray, white and black), two cargo flat cars, a cargo carrying truck, several Maersk cargo containers and 3 minifigs with Maersk blue hard-hats.

Not a big fan of the Maersk blue but that is a beautiful set and just might have to be my first train purchase.

Wow! I know it has been said already, but that really is gorgeous. The only thing that might make this set better would be a Maersk blue forklift for moving cargo from the truck to the rail cars. Well done Lego designers!

New Maersk Train

I don't have much to say about this, as I'm not much of a train guy and have no collection of Maersk blue (and no money, thus, no reason to start right now), but I just heard about this through PortLUG and thought I'd pass it along.

Well, it most certainly is quite stupendous. I recently got the Emerald Night as my very first Lego Train, so this would be the perfect complement to it. After all, freight has to be handled somehow in a railway.

Part of me was hoping for another steam train, but this just looks so well done and cool that I can't hold a grudge.
I think TRON-based Lego sets would be awesome!

I can't wait to learn what the price is for this. With the fairly high price for the container ship re-release, I wouldn't be surprised if this hit $199.99 US, but I'm hoping, at the most, it's $149.99 US. Maybe I'll put this on my birthday wishlist.

Well, it's not Power Functions-equipped, just -enabled (like the Emerald Night), and it doesn't come with any track, so...I just can't see it being that expensive.

$129.99?

In part count it's quite a bit more than the current Cargo Train set, but that set comes with PF integrated and with a lot of track.

I love the look of this, but I have 5 or 6 non-compatible older-era train sets that I'd have to get rid of before I'll even consider buying the new trains. I'm VERY tempted...

I see potential in Maersk blue for usage in Separatist vehicles.

Perhaps in MOCs, but not in retail sets. I'm pretty sure that specific color is trademarked by Maersk.

As for the set, that sticker on the nose of the engine is driving me insane.

Looks like a nice semi-scale Lego rendition of an EMD SD40-2 with B-B (4 wheel) trucks instead of C-C (6 wheels)
Here is the prototype:

Why? PF can run on older track. It's battery based. You just need to leave your existing track unpowered.

I'm liking these new power functions trains (Emerald Night and this). They look really good and I think they'll look even better on display or running around on track.

I'm excited for this set. Hopefully it's not too expensive so I can get a couple.
