A Train à Grande Vitesse Inspired LEGO Set

LEGO TGV Inspired Train

LEGO recently announced the brand new Horizon Express train set, which will be part of the Creator theme. Considered an “Expert” build, the set features 1350 LEGO elements and 6 minifigures. Sporting a distinctive orange color scheme, the Horizon Express bears an uncanny resemblance with 1st generation French TGV.

The Horizon Express is most similar to the TGV Sud-Est, which first entered service in 1981 on the Paris to Lyon line, making it the first train and route to feature high speed rail in France. Due out in January, 2013, the set is priced at $129.99.
