"When my older brother talked with me about the family gathering to purchase such an expensive Lego for a little bopy's 4th birthday, I was ready to do my part.
Being a lego fan for almost 37 years (i'm 40, so for how long I remember myself!), and being the main guilty party that my nephews and niece for loving lego (they are 4, 7 and 9).
For several reasons the build process was up to me and my older brother, but the look on the Pedro's (the birthday boy) face meant we need to get it build on a fast pace, and it was worthy! As soon as the train was build he started to prepare the tracks to race with the other train set that he already has (the 60197) .
The story been told now for the review...
although a bit expensive, we can see where the money goes, with over 1200 parts and a great design with several features on all sections it means that the playability will last for a long time.
Ideas for a near future (let's hope it happens)
It would be great to see a train station , maybe inspired on the train station on the harry potter 2019 train, something looking XIX century arquitecture of 1960's one, with 2 our 3 train tracks (like a normal train station)! The second idea would be a cargo truck with several containers for the train.
