All aboard! Today, LEGO announced the arrival of the #71044 LEGO Disney Train and Station set! Below are the press release with set description, pricing, availability, and other details. Look through the information and let’s discuss! 🙂

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 #71044 LEGO Disney Train and Station. 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 train has app-controlled functionality, meaning builders can use their smart phone or tablet to drive the train forward, reverse, and emit realistic sound effects. The Disney Parks-inspired train station features miniature locomotives and picture frames with details inspired by the actual stations. Inside the station you will also find 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!

Oh, my, I wasn’t expecting this! I love the colors of the set! The station looks so nice, and so is the train. And I love Minnie! I wonder why they changed her skirt to cloth.

Minnie has a cloth skirt so she can sit down inside the train. 🙂

It’s really nice looking, but wow, that price! It’s probably due to the power functions. They should have included that as an optional add-on.

I see several new parts, like the black handcuffs for that awesome ironwork, new pieces in nougat, and of course the minifigs. Is Goofy’s hat a detachable piece? The train seems to be wider than normal. Eight studs, maybe?

I’d guess Goofy’s hat is premolded to his head. He’s rarely seen without it in his most iconic apparance, anyway.

Yes, they are one piece.

Reply

Yes, the train is eight studs wide, wider than other trains.

The station looks so nice. It reminds me of the modular fire station. I really like the color of the roof, the windows, and the black decorations. The trains seems a little too simple for me, but it matches the source material.

I had no idea this was coming up.

I still haven’t put together my Disney Castle. Looks like I need to do some catching up.

Maya McMullan August 13, 2019 at 3:59 PM

oh my…. I wanted the Disney Castle, but it doesn’t fit with the majority of what the SO and I have on display (and we have no room to display something that large). This is so tempting! I think I may be glad I can’t afford it. I wish I could get hold of a Goofy at least.

Reply

admin August 13, 2019 at 9:14 PM

It’s very likely that LEGO will release Goofy either in another set or a future Collectible Minifig Series. They rarely make moulds just for one set. At least that’s the hope. 🙂

Hmm, wonder if that appearance will differ much from this version. In the US appearances he usually seems to have a lime green hat, orange sweater, black vest and blue trousers. in Denmark and Italy he usually has a blue hat, red sweater, black vest and blue trousers, In Netherlands he has a blue hat, orange sweater, black vest and blue trousers, and in France apparently an orange hat, red sweater, black vest and blue trousers… Although it’s likely Lego will go the US route by default…

Håkan August 15, 2019 at 8:56 AM

Also the shoes are usually yellow in Italy, but mostly brown anywhere else…

His Goof Troop variant is a bit different, but it feels a bit less iconic and dated nowadays as a probable choice…

*less iconic, and also a bit dated* … I could have written that more clearly…

Expensive, but it looks really good. I wonder why they made the train engine dark green. Isn’t the original dark blue? I like either color, just wondering. The train station is beautifully detailed.

Reply

admin August 13, 2019 at 9:13 PM

My understanding is that there is more than one version of the train; some dark-green, some dark-blue.

Like others, the price is over my head. I wish the station and motor were sold separately.. Extra straight. track would also help— but that’s an old complaint.

Robert B Hunter August 13, 2019 at 7:09 PM

Wow, looks awesome!

I do have one question: Does it come with a train remote https://shop.lego.com/en-US/product/remote-control-88010 ?

I’m getting the feeling that this you need to buy this item extra. Granted a lot of people have smart phones, but for that price… well, it’s a Disney item, so it’s going to naturally cost more. 🙂

Reply

admin August 13, 2019 at 9:10 PM

Robert, the set does not come with a remote. It is controlled by the Powered Up app. If you prefer a remote, you would have to get it separately. I do agree with you that they should have really added a remote just like they have done with the other Powered Up trains.

Rob August 14, 2019 at 9:26 AM

Heh, used autofill and my full name on my comment above. 😀 Maybe it was a cost saving move for as much as the model is, but at the same time I think it looks better to have the remote with the set. “I’m paying this much and if I want to get the remote and not have my kid using my phone I gotta pay nearly $25 extra?!” Well… whatever works.

Reply

I totally agree, and I would have wanted a remote with this set too. The app is not bad, but it’s kind of inconvenient. Plus, who knows how long LEGO is going to support the app. Without it it’s not possible to turn on or run the train. That’s why I recommend picking up a remote for future-proofing.

Reply

Rob August 14, 2019 at 4:07 PM

Oh, good point on how long Lego supports the app. With any luck there might be an upgrade available as with from Power Functions to Powered Up, but it would be cheaper and wiser to get the remote now. Oh, and I could see this set become a collectible and being able to fully use it would give it more value.

Lego is killing me. I am trying to stop buying sets for a while and this doesn’t help my addiction……

Matthew, no need to rush. This set will be around for a while. I do feel your pain though. So many great sets have been coming out lately!

Legostuff14 August 13, 2019 at 10:15 PM

I think it’s a great set but, do you think Lego is putting it out too soon while they are still having trouble with the new VIP program . ( I called customer service. And it’s still a mess). Unless they’re counting on the draw of the set to pick up their sales and maybe customers won’t care about the VIP problems. Just a curious question.🤔

Reply

admin August 14, 2019 at 10:41 AM

My guess is that the two events are not related as they are managed by completely different departments. In fact, the VIP program is now managed by a third party, so they would have no influence on when this set is released. I do agree that the botched release of the VIP program can effect their sales. I’m sure if it starts to get too painful financially, they will make some changes. But for now, I’m getting the vibe that they are confident the VIP program will work out after the initial hiccups. What I’m hearing through the Ambassador Forum is that relatively few people are still having problems.
