As part of the 40th anniversary for LEGO Trains, Shop@Home is offering a free GWP set, 40370 LEGO Trains 40th Anniversary set. The threshold to get this item automatically added to your cart is a bit high, $99 or more before shipping, but it seems worth it, even to me who is not a train guy in the least.
The back of the box shows the original set this one is based on, 7810 Push-Along Steam Engine from 1980. A few of the parts have been updated to make use of the the modern library of elements like the train axles and stickered elements. That’s really not a knock against the set. I’d expect anything old remade for today to be made with updated parts. The display stand has attachment points to make sure your train doesn’t roll off. All in all, another great GWP.
The promotion started yesterday on March 1st and ends on 11:59pm EST, March 15th, 2020 or while supplies last. Again, you’ll need at least $99 worth of merch before getting it. What’s funny is that new Fiat 500 LEGO set won’t work as it’s $89.99. Strike two against that set.
LEGO sent us a sample of the train set. And FBTB may make a small commission if you click through any of the links in this article and make a purchase. As always, we thank you for your support.
