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.
