Great review 'typo', it's really an excellent classic town inspired set with detail and play features. :wink:
But where's the coffee machine though ? :laugh:

Thanks, I wondered about the coffee machine myself. I guess that's all that's missing. Hopefully in 2012 there will be a new cargo station for these recent, larger containers...

Great review 'typo'. I love this set, and was lucky enough to get one as I started collecting 9V. It remains one of my favorite, all time, sets. Thanks for reviewing it Posted Image

Great review, but I doubt we'd see something like this in 2012... What about 7939?

The crane in 7939 is a nice start or add-on for a new cargo station, but it's not a full cargo station set. A new cargo station in 2012 is really not all that far-fetched...

It's nice to see images of this classic set.  I've added a poll so that our members can rate this set.

In addition, as an FYI, the Train Tech logo you placed at the beginning is used by me to show that the review/topic has been indexed.  I'll leave it for now but have to index later.

Very nice pictorial review, loved seeing the different angles of this set great set (I want that blue rail car chassis  :grin: ). Would definitely be nice to see an update of this for the newer standard 6 wide containers, would pick it up in a heartbeat to complement the Maersk trains in my little collection.  :laugh:

You can get almost anything on BrickLink: Price ranges from $7.00 to $20.00

This set looks nice and I've pondered purchasing it more than once but I wonder, is it really worth the $130.00 and up it would cost (including shipping) when I could build an updated version for that or less? Especially since I really like the scale of the Maersk Containers and am already irritated by the varying scaled Cargo Containers TLG has produced in the past.

Those prices are outrageous...luckily I received this set as a Christmas gift back in the 90's while it was still in production...
