Growing up in the ‘80’s, before the internet and Brickset and Lego stores, the only historical record of older Lego sets were the catalogues that came with each set. The bigger sets had the full range of available sets in a 15-20 page book along with beautiful dioramas. Often, sets in those books were no longer in stores. The fact that these sets were now unattainable made them even more attractive and desirable to 10 year old me.
The most memorable of those sets to me was Big Rig Truck Stop. It just seemed like a really cool set so different from the police and fire sets so prevalent. Does any one else remember a set they could never get due to being too old?
