SALT LAKE CITY — Lego recently announced a new Disney train and station building set, mirroring Disneyland’s iconic entrance with plastic bricks.
According to Kotaku, the new set is part of Lego’s “Powered Up” electrical sets, which means this model train isn’t just a fancy display piece — it moves, too. The train includes three cars that travel around a 20-piece track and can play sound through Lego’s Powered Up app.
Released photos of the set show the train station also features a modeled interior along with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip and Dale miniature figures. ComicBook.com reports the train will be available Sept. 1.
It’s also worth noting the entire set isn’t exactly cheap — the 2,900-piece kit costs about $330, according to a press release. In comparison, you could buy a three-day ticket to Disneyland in Anaheim, California, for about $300, according to the park’s website. While there, you could ride the real Disneyland train, which is a pretty cool experience.
A YouTube video from Inside the Magic shows the full ride circa 2015. Transitions between park areas feature detailed sets housed in well-placed tunnels, “transporting” passengers to the Grand Canyon. Other diversions along the rail include a look at the Jungle Cruise ride and New Orleans Square, which is home to Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion.
In other Lego news, Deseret News recently reported a “Friends” Central Perk set celebrating the show’s 25th anniversary will also arrive in stores on Sept. 1.
