Yesterday, LEGO announced the upcoming #10259 LEGO Winter Village Station via their social media channels. Below is the full press-release with details, pictures, designer-video, and more of this sweet holiday set, the latest in the LEGO Winter Village series. 🙂

Here is the official description of the set: Head for home with the festive Winter Village Station holiday set, featuring a snowy railroad station with wreath adorned lampposts and clock tower, platform, mailbox, green trees, snowy grade crossing with twin barriers and lights, and a beautiful, festively decorated bus with opening doors and a luggage rack with removable luggage and gift wrapped packages. This LEGO Creator Expert model also includes a ticket counter with a timetable and a transaction counter window with room for sliding out tickets to travelers, plus a coffee shop with a serving hatch and a detailed interior with an espresso machine, cups, cash register and a menu. Includes 5 minifigures: a bus driver, barista, grandmother, child and a ticket agent.

  • The festively adorned Winter Village Station features a snowy train station with a clock tower, platform, coffee shop, ticket counter, grade crossing with twin barriers and lights, lampposts, mailbox and green trees, plus a bus.
  • Ticket counter features a timetable and a transaction counter window with room for sliding out tickets.
  • Coffee shop features a serving hatch and a detailed interior with espresso machine, cups, cash register and a menu.
  • Bus features festive decoration, opening doors, luggage rack with removable luggage and gift wrapped packages, and a removable roof for accessing the detailed interior.
  • Drive the happy passengers to the station. Raise the barriers to cross the track. Grab a newspaper and relax with a warm espresso from the cozy coffee shop. Man the ticket booth, serve the travelers and slide the tickets under the serving window. Gather the family for some festive LEGO building!
  • Accessories elements include buildable wreaths and wrapped gifts, plus 2 mugs, ticket, newspaper and an envelope. Special elements include new 1×1 round plate with horizontal shaft, 4×6 roof element in dark blue, gray microphone element, printed ticket element and shield elements with printed clock-faces.
  • Includes 4 straight track pieces to connect with the #10254 LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train.
  • Winter Village Station measures over 7” (19cm) high, 11” (28cm) wide and 5” (14cm) deep. Grade crossing when closed measures over 2” (6cm) high, 5” (13cm) wide and 5” (14cm) deep. Bus measures over 3” (9cm) high, 5” (15cm) long and 2” (7cm) wide.
  • Recommended for ages 12+.
  • 902 pieces.

In the designer-video below, you can take a better look at both the exterior and interior of the station, as well as the bus, the minifigures, and new or recolored LEGO elements.

The official release date for the #10259 LEGO Winter Village Station is October 1st, with early access to LEGO VIP members on September 14th. Pricing is as follows: US $79.99 – CA $99.99 – DE 69.99€ – UK £74.99 – DK 649.00 DKK (Euro pricing varies by country). You will be able to find it at official LEGO stores and under the LEGO Creator Expert section of the Online LEGO Shop.

As you can see, #10259 LEGO Winter Village Station, is really meant to be an add-on set for the #10254 LEGO Creator Holiday Train from last year. It even includes a few straight tracks to add to the curved track pieces that come with the train. The little station and old style bus also fits in perfectly with the previous LEGO Winter Village buildings and vehicles.

Please note that both the #10254 LEGO Creator Holiday Train (from 2016) and the #10249 LEGO Creator Winter Toy Shop (from 2015) are currently available, although we could probably expect some shortages/backorders when the #10259 LEGO Winter Village Station gets released. People will try to complete their LEGO Winter Village collection before the holidays, and the sets are also excellent gift items for Christmas. You can find both previous sets under the LEGO Creator Expert section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Winter Village Station? Do you collect the LEGO Winter Village sets? Are you planning to add the train station? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉

The station is pretty simple, but I love that bus! 😀

The bus really is killer! It’s the best vehicle they’ve done since the Post Office delivery truck and they’ll be sensational tooling along the WV roads together.

Oh, yes! That little post office truck is super sweet! 😀

Lovely! And a clever way for Lego to make you buy the train!

Yes, very clever! 😀

The train is still on sale?…

Yes, the Winter Village sets are available for at least a couple of years after their initial release. So the train should definitely be around for this holiday season, and probably next year too. 🙂

I’m glad they have done this. It will be a great addition to the train! The bus is great too! Can’t wait to add it to our Winter Village.

Cute and I’ll buy it for the bus, the track crossing and the printed pieces but I’m awfully glad I got Miro Dudas’ station instead.

Nevertheless, this building — minus the platform and the exterior waiting bench will still make an attractive village addition as a shop. Perhaps it will be a corner grocery store.

Meanwhile, can’t wait to see what Miro comes up with for this year!!!

I get so excited every year at just the thought of the village coming out and growing each year!

I should add that I applaud Lego for not getting too carried away and keeping these things affordable. I’d like to think that families at many income levels can enjoy this wonderful tradition.

And then, of course, those of us who are Winter Village afflicted can go on to add to them and enhance them in all sorts of creative ways.

I look forward to a survey of what wonderful things other people are doing with their villages as the holiday approaches.

That’s a really good point. With sets like these it definitely makes sense to remain in the affordable category. Especially around Christmas, when people are already stretched financially.

At least if you’re middle class, depending on priorities…

It’s still ‘rather’ expensive…

Miro’s train station is absolutely lovely! You can definitely put the two sets together. Just make the whole thing into a coffee shop, and also sell hot chocolate! I think this year Miro was planning to release a whine cellar, or something like that. I just vaguely remember. Anyway, I will get in touch with him before the holidays to see what he is working on. 🙂

YAY!!! Can’t wait to see!

admin August 23, 2017 at 9:55 PM

Yeah, me too! 😀

It’s a great idea rainey to turn this one into a grocery ‘corner’ store! I too purchased Miro’s train station and wish to extend and keep it as the station and use this one as something else. I really like the look of this new building but it doesn’t suit just any type of store. It will definitely suit a corner store though!

The bus is absolutely gorgeous. I really like the rooflines and colours of the new station, and the crossing boom gates are nicely built too. I was hoping for a new winter torso and scarf or hat with pom pom. Maybe – hopefully – we will get a new minifigure like that with one of the limited edition giveaway sets that haven’t been revealed yet. That’s if they are vignette style. The new printed news paper, tickets and clocks are very much appreciated.

Oh! I would love a hat with pompom too! 😀

I like this station and the bus is darling, but it seems a little high priced compared to some of the other winter village sets. I was expecting it to be more of a $60-$70 price tag rather than $80.

The set does look a little smallish, but the piece-count does match the price. There will be some Double VIP Point periods, so probably it’s best to wait to pick it up at that time to get a bit of savings. 🙂
