This has got to be my favourite non-Star Wars purchase yet! This set has it all: A clear instruction manual, good playability, good minifigures, good value for money, good looks and great fun!
The station looks brilliant. The design of the bridge is clever and the small details such as the clock, the news and route map stickers, the loudspeaker, the little shop, the slidy door, the lamposts and the flowers are fantastic additions and make the station seem more real and atmospheric. The TAXI is also small and sweet, especially with the little suitcase compartment at the back!
Another good point is that it is great fun once you have finished building it. Some sets, you can only build and then you can't do much with, and with others, there is only a limited amount you can do. But with this train station, if you have a passenger train and some track to go with it, you can make up so many story lines and create a lot of different scenarios.
This set is very easy to build, like many other city sets, making it an ideal start for a transport-loving LEGO fan! The only construction bug was that the stickers on the TAXI were very fiddely, but that is just me nit-picking.
Overall, this set is a must have for all LEGO city, trains or transportation fans and, trust me, you won't regret buying it for your collection!
I hope this review has been helpful!
