As advertised on the back of the box for 10308 Holiday Main Street, and for the most part on its listing on the official online store, there are four things you’ll need if you want to motorise your copy of the latest Winter Village set.
The tram in 10308 Holiday Main Street is compatible with the existing LEGO track elements and it’s big enough inside to incorporate electronic pieces while still fitting in minifigures. You’ll need 88005 Light, 88009 Hub, 88011 Train Motor as well as 60207 Tracks provided you don’t have any spare, to upgrade 10308 Holiday Main Street.
With 60207 Tracks, the cost of this upgrade is £84.96 / €93.96 / $94.96. That’s almost as much as the model itself and combined with it, you’ll need a total of £174.95 / €193.95 / $193.95.
With this upgrade, you’ll be able to control the Tram using the Powered Up app and the model will include a working light in the middle of its wreath, with the electronic components mostly hidden inside the build.
It’s not the first time that there has been an open invitation to upgrade a Winter Village model using additional items sold separately as 10254 Winter Holiday Train could be motorised with four extra sets too.
10308 Holiday Main Street launches on October 7 for everyone or October 3 for VIP members for £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99.
