Classic Town and Classic Trains between 1980 and 1994 plus a bit of Classic Space. All I need now is a room big enough for the layout.

comment Electric, Plug Holder 4.5V/12V what is it for?
@Joubarc Indeed - this attention to enabling the wires to be connected and disconnected is likely due to this being a dacta set and so will get a lot of use. Those coloured plugs are also unique to this set as far as I can tell.

comment Why does LEGO state the number of parts on US boxes, but not in Europe?
I wonder how this US requirement to accurately state the number of pieces sits with this statement from LEGO customer services: "When it comes to spare parts, it is random what pieces are included in which sets", relating to the spare parts included with each set. They must mean the parts are random, but the count is consistent. From this post by @Ambo100 in another LEGO Answers question.

comment Can you keep blocks clutched together in big chunks? Will blocks loose their “clutch power” after years of that kind of keeping?

comment What is the rarest LEGO production element (colour/shape combination)?
@jncranton I never thought of the old HO scale vehicles. I suppose we should also consider the Pull-Along Duck from 1935, there can't be many of those still around.

comment What is the rarest LEGO production element (colour/shape combination)?
Agreed, I think the mast rigging is a good candidate. I think printed elements are acceptable but since both the radar and the mast rigging are both from the same set, I suppose it doesn't make any difference. Interesting point on the minifig - I would say that since it is made up of parts, then I would say the minifig as a whole doesn't count even though it is only used in that one set.
