This is a very popular picture, which almost all Lego Trains' fans from 1980s would recognize.

I have the train in the forground, 7740, but not the 4th car (red one). Can anyone please clarify that from where it came? Also, what other trains are being shown here?

The two stations are probably the same model (7822), just different builds. Level crossing (on left corner) is 7834.

Thanks for all the help.

The red car that you mentioned is Mail Van (7820).


There are a number of other trains in the picture including:

7730 - Goods train (the locomotive doesn't seem to be visible)


7710 - Push-Along Passenger Steam Train (just the cars)


7750 - Steam Engine with Tender (pulling the cars from 7710)


7814 - Crane Wagon


7760 - Diesel Shunter Locomotive


7720 - Diesel Freight Train Set (the car in the bottom right carrying rails to the work crew)


It's not a train, but set 6647 - Highway Repair is also present.

Oh man, what a great and detailed answer. Thanks a lot. – Farhan Dec 9 '13 at 18:03
BTW, do you know if the train station in the foreground is really another build of 7822? – Farhan Dec 9 '13 at 18:04
I noticed that 7710, 7720, 7730 and 7750 are mixed in to three trains. They don't appear individually. – Farhan Dec 9 '13 at 18:10
Regarding the alternative build of 7822 question: The station at the back is indeed an alternative of 7822 as can be seen on the back of the box, see this answer to my question. As for the other build, I would guess it is another alternative build of the 7822, but I can't find any reference to it on the box or in the instruction manual – mcqwerty Dec 9 '13 at 19:01
