SuperTrain 2017 – Best Fun Display

Thank you again to everyone who contributed to the SuperTrain 2017 Calgary LEGO Train Club display, to those that volunteered, and to the organizers of this excellent annual event.  There were many great discussion with patrons on how to build with LEGO using an “out of the box” mind set.

Additionally, the Calgary LEGO Train Club was thrilled to have received an award for Best Fun Display and finished third for People’s Choice Award.

Calgary – The BOW

Roy Nelson has been busy working on a replica of The BOW building in Calgary, a prominent landmark in downtown.  We are thrilled to have this as part of our display at Supertrain 2017, later this week.  Excellent job Roy!

Rolling Stock – Tanker

I built a pair of light weight tanker cars.  These are ideal for train shows, such as the upcoming SuperTrain 2017, when you desire to have a “long train”.  The construction using cylindrical LEGO elements allows for the car to be relatively light and easy to pull.  Note that the cars, along with the lavender building, are   being inspected by a person wearing a ball cap sporting the Canadian maple leaf in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday (LEGO City of Tomorrow).
