LEGO Disney 71044 Disney Train and Station is the new set that has Disney fans excited thanks to its combination of a traditional steam engine, the classic Main Street station, enough track to have it moving and the first ever Goofy minifigure. Using 2,925 pieces, there are plenty of details packed into this intricate set that seems to be targeted at the discerning builder.
Steam trains were an important part of the original Disneyland when it opened in 1955, thanks to Walt Disney’s fascination with them. Since that park opened, every other Disney theme park has incorporated steam trains and stations. Given the significance of railways to the theme parks, it makes sense that this would be the LEGO Group’s follow up to 71040 The Disney Castle.
