Thank you very much, Elric for the extra photos.   :wave:

Excellent review, Elric!

Its a real nice looking set. The decking boards on the porch could have done with being brown, but I suppose it's cheaper to make the base all the same colour.

I love the figures and accessories. Is that blood all over that guy??

I love the lantern on the box, and I agree with you Gordon, it would look excellent on your railway setup

Its a shame that there are no straight tracks to be able to extend. Do you Elric, or anyone else, have the old goldmine to check the tracks to see whether they are compatible? as there was a straight piece included in the old set if I remember correctly. (the trucks looks the same, so it might be possible)

Damo :)

I thought that at my first glance too. :lol: I suppose it's only mud though.

Its mud to me

The track looks the same and has the same connector. I doubt Geobra would spend the money to make a new mining cart so hopefully it is the same. I want to use these new humpted tracks for customs . Next we need a switch so we can make elaborate mines. The old mine is still available so I will have to stock up on straights.

Thanks Elric for all the great pictures and info
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

The carrier fits on the new style horses too.

i really like the new style barrell carrier and rope. It looks like you could put a 3rd one on top also

Thanks for the excellent review!
I'm not sure yet weither or not to get this set, it is quite pricey and not my theme but it has several interesting parts... :-\

Is the klicky's blue cap in the same darkblue as the caps from the previous generation Yankee-soldiers?

The blue cap is the same color as the old caps but no printing. Just plain bkue.
