Another train set, yay! Never mind the signs, I'd love to see those big cypress trees back.

I had this as well as its powered counterpart. Lovely little set with a base plate!

Great set - currently in displaying in the town my daughter built recently alongside the modern equivalent and for me, this older one has much more character! Great signs, tree, flowers, barriers - a good place for the chap to work!!!

I think LEGO should be releasing more accessories for trains like wagons or similar sets like this one.
This year LEGO did not even launch a major train station as in previous years.

I never had Lego trains as a kid... loved trains but Lego ones were out of our price range. But I remember seeing this in a catalog and the memory of it stuck with me and whenever I thought of the old train sets this is the one that came to mind. I eventually bought a used copy and I'm so glad I did. There are other and maybe better crossing sets (like the remote-controlled one), but this one has that rare cypress tree. :)

I always thought this was a great-looking set. I never had one, but I did get the one produced in the 2000s. It’s a great set, too, but these earlier ones have a charm from parts efficiency that’s hard to beat.

I wasn't alive in 1985, but did railroad crossings actually have an attendant back then? Today, they're all automated and I remember them being that way in the early '90s as well.
