Lego models: Railroad train & passengers

Seen at the Lego store in the Burlington Mall.

This train looked really good, like one of the model train kits one might come across.

It looked *so* authentic, in fact, that you had to strain to see any of the remaining "Lego signatures" — separate pieces, connector nibs, etc.

How pre-assembled is this? How universal can the pieces be? Can this set build anything other than what we’re looking at here?

If not, then why not just get the cheaper model railroad step and dispense with the token attempt to be "Lego compatible"? I don’t get it.
