Actually, look again! The IR reciever is in the roof, just in front of the fourth fan! In order for it to fit, it would be mounted sideways. The battery box could be hidden behind the SNOT siding pieces which currently have the Maersk logo on them. As for the motor bogies, I'm not so sure. Either bogie could be a motor with that decorative piece on the side. The other bogie could also use the decorative part and the new rail wheels with cross axle. You never know, but I see how PF could be in this set.

The picture has already been removed from Brickset, but this is spreading like a rash all over the web, so it probably won't be very hard to find it even if it gets pulled from this thread as well. A quick Google search proves that point.

Providing it's not for employees only, I predict that it'll cost the same as the new Maersk container ship, i.e. a little over £100.
Bring it on !

I guess that explains the return of the Maersk ship. It's beautiful, but I don't think my budget can take on this and Star Wars at the same time...

-It's an american style train (I just don't like them, but that's because I never see them here )
-Is it possible to motorize this train with the new PF stuff (lights anyone?)
All in all it looks like a great set and a worthy follow up to the emerald night
Well, if you think about it, the Emerald Night was a European-styled train (American steam locos did not have smoke deflectors), and both of the current PF train sets are also European-style. I think it's only fair for this one to be American-styled. While it is true that this will be the third licensed American-styled locomotive set, at least this time it is a worldwide company and not just American specific (like BNSF or Santa Fe).
Actually, it looks to be based on an SD40. Look at the length of the locomotive and especially the long hood. The only thing that it is missing is the 3rd axle, but we all know that's very difficult to do in Lego and still power it. Here's a real-world example (from BlueMoose at Brickset):

I haven't read the topic title, and it was a big shock to me when I saw that picture!!
Ok, I've already changed my "21th century favourite set" from Emerald to this fantastic train!!!
I presume that it'll cost about 130-150 euros..but it is still a great deal!
I just hope that it will not be a Maersk employee set only..

Though in different colours, but Lego have done an AWESOME job on recreating one of these container handling trucks.
Keep on waiting for this one eh ?

With the creator lighthouse sland and hillside house sets along with the "mystery" exclusive modular building and a new city bank.....and now this!!! Looks to be another fund taxing year! Any idea when this wonderful set will be released? I hope this is not another promotional set like the 4999 Vestas....took quite a long time to get a hold of one of those.

I hope PF is just standard expansion and hopefully done better than in 10194 EN. I would actually put it stronger - if this is not PF ready set, it means train PF is just a total failure.
I fully agree this is a 'buy at least two' type of set, especially if you can at least double payload wth PF without any issues.
Finally, I see this as at least £100 set unfortunately.

As for the set, I'm not really a big fan of freight diesels so I'll probably give this a miss.

Not interested in it myself since I dont build train much and since it doesn't have enough Maresk Blue to do anything usefull with (and since I have so many other wishlist items this year like the Atlantis temple and Diagon Alley) but I am sure the guys at the club will be interested.

This is absolutely spectacular! I do believe that it will be expensive though. With this and the Emerald Night, i just might get into trains! Lego really pulled out all the stops on this, its better than the EN.
When does it come out? I may have missed it if someone said.
Get out, you stupid Werewolf!
