Disney Train and Station

©2019 LEGO Group

The latest direct to consumer set will steam into brand stores and shop.LEGO.com next week. Here's all you need to know:

LEGO brick and Disney fans alike will be able to build their very own scale version of the famous steam-powered locomotives as seen at Disney theme parks around the world with the new LEGO Disney Train and Station.

This brand-new set captures a whole host of features in the iconic Disney theme parks style and will be available direct from LEGO stores from 21 August 2019.

The LEGO Disney Train has been inspired by the famous Disney theme park’s railroads around the world and comes with four buildable cars, the engine, the tender, passenger car and a parlor car.


Each of the cars has room for several minifigures to sit. The parlor car features rich interior detailing including armchairs, tables complete with flower vases and a small tea set. The train measures an impressive 77cm when all the carriages are connected making it the perfect size for the 16 piece track.

The set also comes with LEGO Powered Up elements, concealed within the tender car, and classic LEGO magnetic couplers to connect the carriages and move the train. The set also includes app-controlled functionality, meaning builders can use their smart phone or tablet to drive the train forward, reverse and emit realistic sound effects.

The set also features a Disney Parks-inspired train station to build with models of miniature locomotives, picture frames with details inspired by the actual stations.

Inside the toy train station building there’s an array of intricate brick-built furnishings and details, including draped windows, wall clock, ceiling chandelier and a tower room with a little LEGO surprise! The train station measures over 39cm high and 35cm long giving the perfect backdrop for LEGO Disney Train.

The set includes five classic LEGO Minifigures: Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse, Chip 'n' Dale, and, for the first time ever, an exclusive Goofy Minifigure.

It’s beautiful, a good pair with the Disney Castle for sure

That’s a really impressive set. That price seems on par with other similar themes sets, but I ain’t rich.

A beautiful set!

A not-so-beautiful price... (Though I’ve no doubt fans will find excuses to justify it)

By in United States,

I think it looks nice. Now just prepare for the complaints about how Goofy only appears in one $330 set

@nesquik
It’s a train with tracks. Those parts are expensive.

Huh, no physical Powered Up remote (#88010-1) unlike the LEGO City trains? Guess they tried really hard to cut costs this time around, however much you can realistically do that for a large Disney D2C set...

I have to admit I'm pretty pleased knowing that the train is set up the same way as my Powered Up British steam engine MOC, with the Hub and train motor both in the tender, and the Hub even set up the exact same way with the cable and the top both visually suggesting coal. Not that I think LEGO took inspiration from it since almost no (but non-zero) images of it exist, but it just feels nice knowing we came up with the same technique independently. The 1x2 cheese slope "skirts" of the tender are set up identically to one of my prototypes for my own tender, which I ultimately scrapped because I originally thought it looked gaudy, although they were based on the source material shape... I guess LEGO disagrees. (Also because I couldn't BrickLink enough of them in medium lavender; I'd bought out the only local seller's entire stock just to use in the boiler!)

Has LEGO done 8-stud-wide train cars in the past? This is the first time I'm seeing 8-wide by LEGO.

The train looks like a fun build, but the station threatens to get really repetitive in some areas... look at all those black handcuff pieces! The unveiling of this set serves as a sobering reminder that I need to start developing my station MOC to go with my train soon!

Looks very cool! But why not sell the station and train in seperate sets?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

£300 quite steep but then you consider the fact if the power up parts then this set actually isn't bad value and tbh could be the best set of the year in my opinion. And finally a LEGO minifigure of Goofy and the chip and dale figures are so cute, Mickey and Minnie looks fantastic. Now this is an incentive to buy the castle. Plus I've recently been to Disneyland Paris so I'm a bit disney crazy and the CMFs and this set just are epic.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Definite purchase for me :-)
Love the details on the station.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The price is fine... I guess. It is an electric train. The set displays nice with some new ideas to use pieces, like the handcuff piece for the roof. However the front part of the nice looking station still is just a wall with no actual roof. I miss the days where LEGO builds building and not walls.

I like the train but feel like it's very similar to the Winter Village one. It seems like LEGO can only make ones that look like this and modern cargo trains. I'm glad we are getting more trains that years ago, but can we do something different for a change?

And it's not like we won't get another Goofy in the future, LEGO will want to reuse that head piece for the new CMF series.

Apart from the leaked figs, they actually kept the set image pretty quiet this close to release.

But wow, AU$550...I’m assuming at that price there’ll be no stickers? (Jk, I know Lego will let me down here).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This does look good, just abit pricey for me,
I've already spent a fair bit on lego.com bricks n pieces and brick owl this week, but nice train set lego..

Gravatar
By in United States,

I understand the price and it looks great but I would rather it have been released as two separate sets (like the Winter train/station). Then again I would only have bought the station so I kind of understand why it wasn't....

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really dig the ornamental balustrade on the roof with the black skeleton legs and handcuffs!

Gravatar
By in United States,

It is odd timing for this set given the train at Disney World is under refurbishment this year and 2021 is the large park anniversary I would have expected something like this for the 50th anniversary.

Gravatar
By in United States,

First thing I said when I saw it was "Hoo boy, this is gonna be one pricey set!". And, at $330 it is! But it feels like it is truly worth every penny of it. From the train, to the characters, to the very intricately detailed station. And $330 isn't bad for its size, given it contains train track, licensed characters, and Powered Up! elements. But I will complain that they expect you to use a smartphone app instead of including a controller.

Just noting that the Brickset page for 71044 is categorized under "Miscellaneous" for some reason, instead of the "Disney>Miscellaneous" category.

By in Netherlands,

THis is the second D2C set this year alreaddy which exist of 2 big totally differend builds. Me and I guess a lot of other people are exited aboud just one build. But we have to pay the whole price to get that build.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This looks really great. I won’t be at all surprised if they start making rides from the Disney Parks next like Space Mountain or the Haunted Mansion. Tower of Terror would be a great set with the play feature.

But now I’m just sitting here waiting for them to announce that D2C Batvehicle. Cmon LEGO just show me the 1989 Batmobile already!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

£300 and no remote for the train? Seriously? Sorry LEGO, but you can keep your broken toys to yourself.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

This looks spectacular but like others I expected a remote? If I'd not have a Märklin Train I'd probably buy this one, can't seem to think of anything wrong with this set!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I would have said to split it into two sets - train and station separately. Just like the winter village ones.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@joefish, saying it’s broken is extremely ignorant. It’s ok to not like it, but saying it’s broken as a form of insult is factually incorrect. It works as intended; it’s intended to be used with a smart phone.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This would be my most expensive set yet, but only the seventh largest in my collection... I suppose the electronics and track pieces are the main culprits for that.

Looks great though - we have our first ever trip to Disney planned for next year so would be the perfect excuse to have to get it . . . once we've paid the holiday off :)

Gravatar
By in Portugal,

The set is beautiful, the price is ridiculous.

Definitely not worth the 330€ they're asking. This one is one of those that one only buys with double or triple VIP points.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

It's such a beautiful train ... except for the new, awful, cruddy, plastic wheels. While I love most of the design, we can safely assume that Lego's not going back to the nice functional train wheels (not after the Hidden Side train, and now this one), this is their decision going forward, and it stinks.

And almost $600 Australian? That's a hard pass.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow, cool set, and interesting how it will be released to the public the same day my family will be visiting the Disneyland park in California. I wonder if we’ll see it at the Disney Lego store. But that price, looks like I’ll have to bricklink Goofy.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looks like this is mostly based upon the train and station at Disneyland California.

Gravatar
By in France,

Beautiful, expensive. will be surprised if it's not completely dwarfed by the disney castle

Gravatar
By in United States,

This looks awesome I can't wait for this to be released. So many great sets coming out lately. I might need a second job to afford them all.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Too bad I'm being forced to spend money on track and power functions I don't need just to have the rest of it. Track and power functions are readily available on their own, including them by default hust makes it all the more expensive :(

By in Germany,

I really like that Lego offers a new and well-designed train and a train station. As a Lego train enthusiast I want to buy this set but when I look at the price I have to say no. 220 Euro retail and 180 on the market would be more realistic. Electronic motors and bluetooth are cheap commodities these days and do not justify such a steep price point. The missing remote is shameful. Who guarantees that in 5 years time Lego is still supporting the app for the then generation of mobile devices? The production cost for a remote is negligible. Why the new carriage train wheels? The metal axe based ones have stood the test of time and have little friction particularly when adding a little bit of lubricant. Being a Lego train enthusiast is getting harder every year. Very disappointing as I would have money to spend if there were reasonable train offers.

By in United Kingdom,

There's a lot more pairs of handcuffs than I was expecting to see in a Disneyland set. Maybe they're expecting more trouble along the lines of the recent Toon Town brawl.

-me: Can I have a Lego Goofy plz?
-Lego: sure
-me: *happy gasp*
-Lego: it will be 330$ plz
- me: :c

By in United States,

For a mere $330 you can experience the magic.

Thank you, Disney, and thank you, Lego, for making this happen. We needed this.

By in Canada,

Is the pricing accurate? After seeing the recent 50% hike in converting the price of #21319 into CAD, I'm a bit suspicious of a meager 15% increase here.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I love this set its great
PS. With this set the Lego group should make Disney park attractions and rides i would love a matterhorn set that would be awesome.

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Wow, thats a 150€ license

By in United States,

Something to go along with the Disney Castle for those owners, awesome set.

By in Canada,

Hard pass for me bring on the direct to Consumer Batman set

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@Klinton77 - I agree with you about the CAD/USD price differences between #71044 and #21319. To me it's inexplicable but if anyone has an explanation I'd be interested to know why.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Bah now I need to get the castle and then somehow find even more money for this and all the many other brilliant sets they’ve brought out this past year.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Times like these I wish I had infinite money and space, but I’m happy with the complete Lone Ranger Constitution Train Chase I bought with a handful of other LR sets for about £70 fairly recently instead! I’m going to save for the inevitable Star Wars UCS because I can’t idly get a £200-£300 set every other month, even if they’re fantastically designed.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I absolutely love this line of Big exclusive Disney sets. First the castle now this. They combine the details of a proper modular set, with the nostalgia of the Disney parks from many of our youths. I know there’s a lot of Disney controversy right now with Star Wars and what not but no one can deny that their parks are truely magical and these sets are a great representation of that. Here’s to hoping that lego continues this theme in the future!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can understand The Disney Castle, but I don't get this. Maybe it's because I only went to Disney once when I was arguably too old for it, but I don't understand why this set is desirable.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

The set looks fantastic, but I don't really have any desire to buy this set outside of Goofy. I've never been to the parks, so there's no nostalgia with me as I haven't seen this in any films or anything.

I think I would have preferred it come non-motorized and with significantly less track so that the price may have ended up being a little more palatable.

It's worth what it costs, but I think this just isn't for me as it stands.

Hopefully a nearly identical Goofy will come out in some other CMF set or something. Identical with a black vest instead of yellow would be a good variant.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Looks great, at a better price I will think about getting it. But certainly not for such a ridiculous RRP.
I ain't goofy enough for that ;-)

Gravatar
By in Norway,

What a fantastic set! But.., because it's 8 stud wide I will display the train on a shelf. Not sure what to do with the station tho. It doesn't fit in the city, that's for sure.

By in United States,

Thanks LEGO for another train with interesting building techniques and a different theme. It looks to be a fun build. Also, it is nice to have Goofy added to the growing collection of Disney characters in minifigure format.

I understand the comments regarding price and agree that it would be more accessible if the cost was lower. However, due to the piece count, the inclusion of power functions, and licensing, I don't have an issue with the U.S. pricing.

The main problem, i think, isn't value but rather ability to pay that much for one set. We've seen a continuous rise in set sizes which directly leads to more expensive products. AFOLs are getting great sets but the volume of high ticket items is growing quickly. Lunar Lander, Jurassic Park, Stranger Things, Harley Davidson, and now the Disney Train are all above the price point of a child and yet keep being churned out nearly every month.

Additionally, there are more sets in recent series. For example, I used to be able to collect All of the Star Wars waves for $150-$250 (not including UCS) That is no longer possible. The Hidden Side collection alone would cost $440. Nobody is forcing me to buy the whole lineup but it'd be difficult to do so if I wanted.

It is a lot to attempt to collect/afford. This isn't a complaint but rather an honest assessment of the current state. Some people may be able to get everything they want, while others perhaps budget to get those must-have sets, and still another group isolates one or a few items to purchase. None of this is bad/wrong/unfair. It just is how things are. LEGO doesn't expect us to love/buy every product the offer and so variety is a great thing. I'm enjoying this level of choices and have come to pick things from several themes. Hopefully, everyone is finding at least one set that brings them joy/entertainment.

On a side note, 52 stickers seems excessive. I don't want ANY but understand that some parts can't be printed. Still, the answers as to why $10 sets get printing and +$200 ones geared towards adults have stickers is confusing. I've heard three different answers:

1) Kids could choke on stickers
2) Adults won't touch the display-type items as often, so stickers are an acceptable solution which also keeps down costs
3) This is a kids toy toy and children love stickers (this conflicts with reasons one and two)
4) Printed parts are less likely to be used to build creatively

I don't understand how all three can be correct. Even if any of them are, I don't want stickers in adult level sets which cost 100's of dollars. I've started voicing this in the surveys, which seem to arrive after purchase, and also by not purchasing some recent sets such as Jurassic World with the signage not printed (I just DON'T get it). If cost is the issue, then charge $300 for the 3,000 piece set and include a printed and non-printed piece. This way, I can be creative with the parts and build something else or keep the set put together forever and enjoy either option. Another option could be to make the non-printed part version available as a sub-pack (like motor functions, train tracks, etc.) to keep the price down on the base model while allowing for upgrading. Stranger Things and the Lunar Lander I understood the stickers but this shouldn't be the norm. The Mustang was nearly ALL printed (even the striping). I do see them trying but it should be more consistent.

Okay, enough novel writing/ranting.

Again, overall, thanks LEGO!
