SuperTrain 2019

An other excellent year at SuperTrain. Thank you very much to all of those that organized and volunteered at this show. Attendance was done a little from previous years, at 9500 people… but we all had a wonderful time.

The LEGO amusement park was a hit this year and provided a lot of movement on our display. The petting zoo being overtaken by dinosaurs was also very popular with the younger children, looking intently at the high level of detail. Downtown Calgary is always popular and was excellent with some new additions (the Hudson’s Bay building downtown and the BMO Roundup Centre) along with the favourites (the Hyatt, City Hall, the Bow Building, and the Suncor Building).

The Stampede Parade and power plant, with working Wartsila generators, were impressive. All of this was surrounded by many trains travelling to and fro.

SuperTrain 2018

Another excellent year at SuperTrain. The venue was wonderful, this year Canada’s Largest Model Train Show… and a great opportunity to show off LEGO as a fun way to enjoy model trains.
