“Deck the Load and Hauls with Technic. Fa–la–la–la–la, la–la–la–la.” Trains receive a lot of love around this time of year, especially on the cover of many a LEGO Shop-at-Home catalog over the years. Of all the images produced, this is perhaps one of the best. For 1993, the “Load and Haul Railroad” (set #4563) earned itself a special spot under the Christmas tree. It’s also cool to see that the minifigures are just as animated as the expression of sheer joy on that boy’s face.
If you enjoyed this blast from the past, be sure to check in with BMR every day from now through December 25th. I will be digging through my files and reaching out to friends for holiday advertising, articles, etc. featuring trains. There will be a new image for each and every day, the last of which will be on Christmas day!
