Heavy Haul Train on Sale! (Red Locomotive)

Post by TheRebricker »

The Heavy haul train is on sale for $191.98 CAD down from $239.99 CAD. The train station is also on sale.

Lego seems to be clearing out train related sets. Usually a company will do this when planning to introduce new stuff... might there be new stuff on the way? Perhaps some trains geared towards AFOLs like the Technic sets coming this year?

That would be awesome.
But as for the sale, sale prices on shop.lego.com don't always mean the set is about to retire. Sometimes they just have too much stock in the warehouse. (I've seen sets go on sale 'then back to regular price a few weeks later.)
The cargo train set is older than the heavy haul set.

Age of the set doesn't really mean anything either, as some sets, such 9465 The Zombies go out of production after 4 months, and some such as 6212 X-wing Fighter stay in production for over 4 years!

True that.
Popular sets outlast. That's the reason Pet Shop modular outlasted the Grand Emporium modular.
