      I'm not quite sure as to what you mean, please explain?

      I love how in the announcement they said you can discover sideways building techniques because they cant say SNOT.

      Hmm, exactly how much hasn't it surprised you Carl? I am sure there has been AFOL involvement in this, just like Emerald Night and Hobby Train. Might you be one of the people we have to thank?

      It's cool to see them incorporate more and more clever techniques in their models. I think the fact that they've got AFOLs as designers must help.

      and
      I don't think it's a coincidence that there are two plates between the white cheese slopes in the arrow. They're probably 1x1 plates with clips, that clip onto rods that run horizontally behind the arrows. At least, that's how I would do it.

      "Horizon Express"????

      How about "TGV South"? ;) Can't believe they chose this design and color for the TGV. Thats the 1980s colors of the "TGV Sud" (sud meaning south -> for the lines going south) These long since have all been repainted blue. Very cool set nontheless and orange sure is awesome! :)

      Cant believe how much snot has been put into this model!! That's just great! Also it seem that getting 2 or 3 of these will make a complete train

      Psi, as much as I'd like to say yes, No I'm not. This has Jamies style plastered all over it but I could be wrong.

      ^ My first impression was that Jamie had a part in this too, but I could be wrong ;)
      Nice design with a good mix of interesting techniques squeezed into a durable model.

      Mindblown.

      I have got to get this, looks so cool, and it would be a fun build challenge. Hope they make more Expert sets, this one is brilliant!

      Hmm, to buy or not to buy. I guess if I got tired of it I could find something orange to build. :P

      Dont be jealous... but I touched this set at Skaerbaek. Just saying. Giggle.

      I'm so buying this!

      Very nice, but in fact it's basically a remake of this set from 1985 : zh-tw.bricker.ru/images/sets/7745_brickset.jpg?ds

    15. gambort 18 months ago | reply

      ^ Same basic source for sure. When I was a kid I so wanted 7745, but never could afford it :(

    16. Cale Leiphart 18 months ago | reply

      I would hardly call this a remake. As Tim pointed out they do draw from the same source material but calling this a remake is like calling a Ford Mustang a remake of the Model T. These two sets are vastly different in character, detail and execution.

    17. Crimso Giger 18 months ago | reply

      Sad, the 80's trains were nice but very expensive... The new one, being a "Creator" set, has a good ratio price/piece I think.

      I've spoke too fast, maybe. Not a real remake you're right, but my first tought about this new set was "Finally, they've remembered 7745", at least in the spirit :)

      Anybody remember THIS from 1989. And I agree, TLG can't call it TGV, but the rest of us should call it what it is.

      How exactly can something with instructions be a "build challenge?" Build it now from the pictures; that's a challenge.
