Our friends to the North in Edmonton, Northern Alberta LEGO® Users Group (NALUG), participated in the Great Edmonton Train Show (GETS) last weekend. They did an outstanding job! Please take a look a the two YouTube video’s:
Wow…. Summer has blown by – the leaves are starting to turn yellow and fall to the ground, children are back in school, the mornings are cooler with the occasionally frost… and that means that Fall is here. Along with the change in season, the members of the Calgary LEGO® Train Club have been very busy and are excited to participate again in Heritage Park Railway Days on Saturday, September 28th and Sunday, September 29th.
The theme this year for the Calgary LEGO® Train Club will be a display stretching from the prairies through the mountains to Vancouver.
We hope that you are able to make it to Heritage Park and view our display. If not, though, we will post photo’s in our photo gallery.
Long story short, it took me a few years to collect the LEGO® bricks required to complete this train. I wanted to build this train in a bright color and choose yellow, primarily due to the availability of yellow 2×2 sport LEGO® bricks. The inside of the train is quite complex in that the bottom section is built “up-side-down” to create the underside of the car. I am looking forward to using these cars in an industrial section of the Calgary Lego Train Club‘s display at Heritage Park‘s Railway Days at the end of September.
