LEGO 40262 Christmas Train Ride is back at LEGO.com

LEGO 40262 Christmas Train Ride has returned to LEGO.com in the UK, just in time for this year’s seasonal celebrations.

The 169-piece festive set first launched in November 2017, before disappearing from LEGO.com in the UK in early 2018. But the LEGO Group has clearly found a pallet in the back of a warehouse, because the long-dormant set has now risen from the graveyard of retired sets.

The Christmas-themed display includes three minifigures, a ride-along train, stalls, a picnic bench and some snowy scenery. And it can once again be yours for the original price of £8.49. If you want to bulk out your Winter Village setup, then, that’s a pretty good value proposition.

40262 Christmas Train Ride isn’t the only seasonal set currently available on LEGO.com. As well as the wonderful 10275 Elf Club House (review), you can also pick up 40426 Christmas Wreath 2-in-1, 40424 Winter Snowball Fight and 854050 Snowman & Reindeer Duo.

Unfortunately, stateside fans are out of luck, because 40262 Christmas Train Ride isn’t currently available in the US. You can fill your boots with the rest of the Xmas sets listed above, though, so Christmas isn’t cancelled just yet.

The LEGO Ideas team has also been getting into the festive spirit with its latest contest, which combines Christmas and Star Wars – with big prizes on offer.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. I’m also Associate Editor for Blocks magazine, and dabble in content strategy, writing and PR for a few non-LEGO platforms.
