The set no. 10015 'Passenger Wagon' is another excellent addition to Lego’s 2001 "My Own Train" series. Frankly, this vehicle’s design is perhaps my least favorite, even though it still looks great. The coach has four seats inside, and a tiny furnace perhaps used for heating. The rest of the vehicle is very similar to other cars in the collection, based on the same chassis and bogies.

Lego discontinued "My Own Train" in 2004, after releasing only around 15-18 models (while standard 9V "Trains" never went away). If I'd have to guess, perhaps the biggest hurdle to break onto the model trains market was that Lego, by definition, has a certain level of abstraction to it. Their creations are not about realism—even in the largest and most sophisticated Technics 1:8 sets, you aren't making a "model" per se (as in a life-like replica). Instead, it's creating a "Lego version" of the object, according to specific and strict laws of the Lego Universe (and those are not conventional concepts of beauty and elegance).

Everything is too different, from a changeable and non-fixed scale, floating somewhere between 1:24 and 1:48 (and not matching any existing model trains) to the building process itself: snapping bricks together is fun enough for AFOLs, but most adult modelers prefer a bit more DIY style, with glue, paint, tiny scalpels, brushes, magnifying glass, etc. Even if enough non-Lego train collectors were willing to buy into brand new incompatible hardware (talking a lot of rail tracks and 9V Electric components too), Lego couldn't possibly keep up with demand and provide enough choices and variety.

@Scrubs, no, just like the others, only the wagon. (Sorry, I forgot to mention it in this description, like the rest of "My Own Trains")
