"I must admit 2 things: This set only makes sense for those who have the 2016 Holiday Train (or that beautiful one from a previous year), and if you really want to expand your Winter Village. That's exactly what I was locking for !!! :-) I confess I thought it was more "simple" and less challenging before assembling but it was a very pleasant surprise ! and believe me full of lovely details ! My daughter (10 years) she really loved ! And now we have to expand our Xmas "lego table" ....and we can't wait for that !!! My recommendation if you are a winter village fun and if have last year's train you defenetly have to buy this one !!!"
