Wow, I'm surprised no one had done this already. First off, this is a truly lovely set that many people should own, even though it's SOLD OUT on the S@H :'-( . now lets start off with an overview.

*Note*: I was missing a few of the pieces (the rabbit, the trike) when I toke the pics. The figs and a cat.
Posted Image
The engine: I really love this thing. It's a beautiful 0-6-0 steam engine with a tender. This is probably the most detailed steam engine Lego has given us. I loved it so much, I made a non-holiday version for my town.

The flat cars: I like these, but they seem a bit simple. Their cargo is good for Christmas or a birthday party.
Posted Image
The passenger car: It resembles the green passenger car we got a while back, but I like the interior in this one a bit better.

Posted Image
The caboose: a simple caboose like the one from 2001. the sad thing about it is thats there is no interior and it's hard to take the roof off.
Posted Image
Overall: I like this set, but it is kind of hard to use during the non winter months. The price is kind of good, but with that price, it should have came with the motor. I give it a 9/10
Happy New Year!

Thanks for the review AgentRick57. It is a beautiful set, and quite cheap for me; $50 AUD for 965 parts!  8-°  Not sure what I will do with the rabbit though; it is huge!  :-D

(I was considering doing this review myself but Sinnerton is a mess... :-/ )

Thanks for the good review, I wish I had bought one when it was going for only Ł24.99 on LSAH instead of the usual price of Ł50!

I was fortunate enough to get one along with the Hobby Train. They are the first trains I have ever owned (mainly by virtue of them having been half price).

It's a fantastic selection of parts with the Holiday Train, as well as it really looking the part as a set.

I'm happy not to get a motor; as I think the 9V setup would prove expensive, and the IR control system for the RC setup seems a bit poor.

I got some "dead" track for with it to have just as a push train for now.
