The 10194 Emerald Night Train is by far the best looking steam engine train Lego has ever produced. It is highly detailed and a beautiful replica of a steam engine train from the 1800's. As a train fan I'd have to say this is one of my favorites. It comes with a steam engine, a coal car, 1 passenger car and three minifigures. What's great is that you can purchase additional passenger cars to make the steam engine even longer and more realistic looking, but you will have to turn to third party sellers online on sites like eBay in order to acquire these addition cars.

This train set does however have a major downside that effects playability when using Lego Power Functions to power it. What I have found is that the train has friction/movement issues that cause the trains wheels to lock up when running along the track. That being said, there are ways to modify the train to prevent this issue. Also, when using Lego Power Functions you can light up the front headlight to the steam engine so the train conductor can light his way through the night. Pretty cool in my opinion!

From a display standpoint this train looks amazing. One can display it on a shelf in their home or office. This train retailed at $99.99 USD from 2010-2011 and has since been retired by Lego. If you can find a sealed unopened set, you will probably have to pay around $200 USD for it. I do still think there is some room for growth for investors as Lego trains are very popular among train collectors. This set is a must have for train and steam engine fans!

Wow Factor this is by far the best looking steam engine.

Unique parts it has green 2 by 4 slope brick with 2 gold stripes exclusive to this set it has tan 4 by 1 by 3 tan windows and other rare gear bricks plus it has 3 different wheels first set to have larger bricks it comes with 3 mini figure very normal

playability it moves rough and slowly and with 9v engine not at all. building experience great so i gave it a 5 but little to no playability but a great display it is a model of the flying scotsman

value of money it ยข9 a brick not bad. for the final outcome a really nice value

theme popularity it exclusive a sub-theme of train. I think the most popular theme is exclusive and it also comes with great growth potential

exclusivity only found in lego store but today only found on ebay

packaging normal packaging comes with 2 manuals and numbered bags

growth potential it double in price in just a year and it is going to go up even more

display attributes it is very high i have mine as a display instead of being on my track. it looks very good

overall due to its movement problems I give it a 8
