The building of this Lego train set has been a long time coming.  I searched back and I first blogged about my anticipation for putting this set together back in October 2012!

Series 10 of the Lego Minifigs have finally begun to arrive on our shores!  This weekend, Jen and I picked up a handful of packs.  As usual, I sat unhelpfully on the sidelines whilst Jen felt the bags and identified the minifig inside.  She hit a 100% accuracy rate on 14 bags.  That’s right.  We didn’t get a single duplicate. ...
