I always thought this set was cool back in the LEGO Creator game... good times!

Always loved these little sets. Multiple vehicles, little vignettes, plenty of playability.

It's curious to see some comments. I think that they should depend on the generation of each of us, and our memories. For me this set is ugly. It is from the time when the sets were highly juniorized. I stopped buying LEGO almost completely because of that. I had the opportunity to buy some of those sets highly discounted and even then, I did not buy them. But I'm happy that some people still appreciate them.

Late 90s, innit. Not Lego's strongest period.

And yet another truck that's a flatbed, rather than a full trailer. Flatbeds seem like they're way over-represented, today especially.

I think my brother got this as a birthday present when we were much younger. It was a pretty nice set at the time, though it’s hilariously simplistic by today’s standards. The cafe doesn’t have a cash register or anywhere to sit, for example.

Our dog also ate one of the customers’ hands... though we did get it back eventually :s

I'm surprised that so few of us have it in their collections! I think the main reason why I got it is because it's got a hamburger sticker and I wanted to have a snack in my city layout :D

Yeah, for Town Jr, this set is really a tale of two different sets. The trucks are awful, but the actual little cafe is really cute.

This set to me at least seems to sum up perfectly a low point in the history of Lego. Unoriginal builds, lacking the charm of earlier sets and lacking the realism and innovation of later sets. Glad they picked their game up...

Pizza delivery truck?

Definitely a low point in vehicle design

I would say the concept of the set is/was nice, but in vehicle design IMHO this just looks awful. A few years before and after cars and trucks looked way better (especially the trucks).

On the one hand, this set seems cool because it has a building, a buldozer, a truck and a trailer. But on the other hand, none of them look that great.

@Bobsy

Yeah. There's lots of flatbeds, but that's because they're cheaper and use less parts than a full trailer. Kids don't care, so if a flatbed will make a set $10 cheaper, a flatbed it will be.

I own this set & after owning a lot of great 80's & 90's sets, & as soon as I got this set, it put me off LEGO for at least 10 years!!! This City/Town range pretty much killed LEGO off for me!!! Thank god LEGO pulled themselves out of the dark ages & are producing fabulous sets nowadays!!!

When this set first came out in 1998, it was not sold in North America. I remember being on vacation in Europe with my family and picking one up. It was eventually sold in NA through [email protected] in 1999.

Where is the outrage over price per piece? Adjusted for inflation this is like $40 for an unlicensed set with 130 pieces and 3 figs.

Sometimes you have to fail to learn how to succeed (succeed again, in LEGO's case). That's what LEGO in the late 90's sets say to me.

I wonder how LEGO managed to slump to such levels after the excellent LEGOLAND Town sets of the Eighties and early Nineties.
Even more amazing that they survived this period and nowadays offer City sets that are almost as desirable as those from the (g)olden days.

Imagine all kinds of big trucks overwhelming that small truck stop.
