Chugging onto store shelves on September 1, the Lego Disney Train and Station set is more than just a $330 piece of buildable Disney memorabilia. It’s a working train set made up of 2,925 Lego bits and controllable via a smartphone app.

Take my money! I have three of the trains from various years, the most recent being the Christmas train. They're all fun. I also have the Disney Castle, which is one of the most fun sets to build because it's so damn big. This looks like a winner.
I know what I'll be doing that weekend. We have the castle too and it's easily my favorite piece.
Will it be okay to place them next to each other, or do I have to keep them on opposite ends of the house?
EDIT: I don't see it on their website yet.
8/21 for VIP, 9/1 general release.
Wow, that is nice! I have never bought one of the train sets because I'm the guy who would buy 2 miles of track for it. Well, since I just finished the Voltron set, I guess I better get the kids toys off the ground so I can lay 2 miles of track.
I've always wanted the castle set, but I've just never pulled the trigger on it. I'll probably get this one. My wife is always after to me to occasionally buy something fun that I want vs. stuff that I need and this looks like a good excuse.
I ordered the set on Wednesday and it was waiting for me after work last night. I worked for probably a few minutes shy of 4 hours and got through the locomotive, tender, and 1 of the 2 coaches. That's 5 of the 18 bags, not counting the one un-numbered bag with some larger pieces, the battery pack, and the car couplers. This is by far the largest set I've ever worked with, so it took me a few minutes to hit my stride (took me a good 15 minutes to figure out the couplers were in a separate bag). Lots of fun so far and I'll get back at it tonight.
Mine came today, but I haven't opened it yet. Nothing will take as long as the Falcon!
