What's your first Train set?
Posted 29 August 2009 - 11:15 PM
I'm a big Lego Trains fan, but I haven't got any Train sets... for now. I'm buying a great set - 4558 Metroliner with speed regulator - on Monday.
What are yours first Trains set?
EEEEEEEH MACARENA! AY!

It was Railway Express 4561/4560 or the one that had track and a speed regulator
I enjoyed watching go around the track and hearing the electronic hum of motor as it sped along
Really a cool train still, great dining car and I loved how they were watching a space film hehe

I hope you soon got other train sets. The train track snow remover without other train sets is no fun.
My first train set was Road and Rail Maintenance 4546. I got it in November 1991 for my birthday. I told my parents that I wanted that set so much as a birthday present. I knew I'd be a great addition to what I was wishing for Christmas of the same year: Load and Haul Railroad 4563, Manual Level Crossing 4539, and Straight Rails 4515. And I really got what I'd been wishing! And my brother got Railroad Tractor Flatbed 4543 for Christmas. How convenient!

In this way you can know how long your layout is and how fast a train can. I don't know the max.speed anymore. The battery is dead for 2 years. Still need to get a new one .
Well I hope you get in near future trains which you are habby with.

I've never been a train fan before in my life - but I now realise what all the fuss is about. I got 2 boxes of the flexible plastic track (Heretic! I know... ) and I've really enjoyed running it. The new PF with the IR kit is pretty clever and I like how it is possible to run 4 trains simultaneously with the same remote - very useful.
My local LUG (the Scottish part of Brickish) runs a lot of train displays and it's great that I've now got the kit to contribute. I suppose I need to make up for the fact that it's taken me 23 years to get my first LEGO train by building loads of MOCs in this fantastic theme!

Until after my dark age, I had a simple loop of track and two points. It was still the highlight of my lego town.
I agree with vgo, 133 is a sweet little loco. It was one of the trains I've bought since my dark ages ended. 725 is my favorite though

My first train set was #182 way back in the 70's. During my childhood I've focused on the 12 V grey area, building once a huge layout from ideabook #7777:
As AFOL I got some 9V sets as well but I do not care much about collecting set, I prefer building my own trains designs these days.

After my 'Dark Ages' my first AFOL train sets were #10133, #10020, and #10170.

I made a track around my Lego town setup when I was a child out of the old blue tracks and filled in some of the gaps with just any old bricks I could find.
Fast forward nearly 25 years and my sister has given me my nephews
I need to get it off the desk and working on a new Lego town AFOL layout at work! And you can just spot my old 7810 to the left of the picture
