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.
