  1. Looking at past LEGO Trains releases in the Creator Expert vein, I am pretty convinced that we will see the locomotive, tender, and single-passenger coach in the final set. This is combined with the fact that the designer of the new OE originally submitted it with (I believe) two coaches. LEGO removed the original submission after it received around 3K supports, as it exceeded the theme's piece count limit. The designer says he designed this with track compatibility in mind, so the wait is on to see if LEGO follows through on that.

    LEGO Trains 2023

    Your comment truly does read as though you are linking the Emerald Night with having more than a single-passenger coach. You also could be a bit more polite in your reply, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt that a potential language barrier is forcing you to be a bit less congenial. Also, LEGO hasn't produced a Trains set of this style with that many coaches - ever. The piece count and price would simply be too high to move units. You are asking for something that just doesn't fit within LEGO's system. I fail to see how LEGO producing the Hogwarts Express in a larger scale indicates they have lost the plot in its entirety. Was it a misstep in our eyes? Yes, I agree with you. But that doesn't necessarily mean that they would view this new set as being in the same lane. (It doesn't have a license to rely on, a more niche subject matter, etc.) They proved me and many others wrong that were surethat we wouldn't be seeing another steam locomotive set for a long time after the Hogwarts Express release. I am convinced that they will need the Trains fans in order to make this a success.

    I think you may be misremembering a bit. The Emerald Night came with only one passenger coach.
  4. Studgate was released in limited numbers as a Bricklink set a few months ago.

    2023 is shaping up to be one of the best years for LEGO Trains in quite a long time!
  6. The designer of this is in some of the LEGO Train Facebook groups. I asked if he designed this with track compatibility in mind and he said, "Yes, but LEGO will decide for the final product." Fingers crossed that LEGO follows his cue.

    New LEGO Speed Champions 2023 Rumors, Speculation

    Ditto on the good prices. Walmart in particular seems to discount the Speed Champions sets often.
  8. Is there any chance that the 'Power Feeders' and other wire accessories may hit the market sooner than later? Weighing whether I want to take the time to re-wire my current sets or wait for the FX ones to hit stores.

    Has there been any consensus on if the Crocodile Locomotive was indeed meant to kickstart a new round of LEGO AFOL Trains, and if so, if it was a failure or a success? I was really hoping that we'd see some type of continuation of this micro-theme and with the disappointing release of the static HE, it feels like an empty future for AFOL Trains.

    I get that. I know Train fans represent a fraction of the buying power of the market. A big, licensed train set that couldn't be bothered to be designed as an actual train. Conclusive proof of the Trains market share. You're right! Modders will surely find a way to salvage something out of this. I know I need to look on the bright side of this. lol ... I am interested to see if LEGO will ever clarify in their sales description that the set is NOT meant to be compatible with the existing track. They have 'batteries included on the box, and talk about the 'realistic movement'. Seems like a recipe for confusion and some angry purchasers.

    It's interesting seeing how the various fan segments are evaluating the set. A lot of the general HP fans are impressed with how big this is and are really focusing on the minifig selection. Most of the Train fans are confused. Many still don't realize that it isn't compatible with tracks. LEGO really doesn't make that clear anywhere on the website. --- I do wonder when the 'bigger is best' mentality will end - if it ever will. The sizing of this just feels so excessive with no real point. Yet, many seem to love the 'it's the longest ever' status.

    I think this is the most disappointed I've ever been regarding a new LEGO release. So much potential wasted. Knowing that this will take the slot of any potential new steam locomotive sets in the next few years is also a bit of a kick in the pants. The Emerald Night was released in 2009. We still haven't gotten its successor and probably never will.

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    I find it interesting that they mention 'Realistic movement' but there is nothing in the description to warn buyers that this set is not compatible with LEGO's train track system.

    They could have gone 8-wide with this, fit virtually all of the same details into the set, and then it would have been usable for those with LEGO Train layouts. The Emerald Night was released over a decade ago and this was their chance to finally offer Train fans a new set in the same vein. I was really hoping they would take that opportunity.

    Looks to be completely static and not compatible with the current LEGO System train track.
