Awesome set to be reviewing on this holiday season.
The amount of pieces in this relatively inexpensive set is really mind-blowing.
Also mind-blowing is how Lego produced this set, which was designed
by Daniel Siskind, soo much cheaper than what Daniel could have bought
Remember: this was before Bricklink had a big role in the piece acquisition
The only real negative aspect about the set, is that Lego did not include
some of the great minifigs that "came" with Siskind's kit.
As far as the My Own Creation, the 2 Sante Fe Train Cars, 10022 and 10025, which were designed by James Mathis for Lego.
