SuperTrain 2017

Two members representing the LEGO City of Tomorrow were in attendance this past weekend at SuperTrain 2017 waiting on the LRT platform at the Calgary LEGO Train Club’s display for the next LRT train.  As one can see, the end of the train is just pulling out of the station on the right; it might be a long wait… but a good time for these two to collaborate and discuss future plans for the LEGO City of Tomorrow.

A great show with excellent attendance.  Thanks to the organizers, and all who participated.

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).

Toys’R’Us LEGO City of Tomorrow

There will be a LEGO City of Tomorrow event at all Canadian Toys’R’Us stores from 11:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th.  There will be an exciting Virtual Reality station, as well as a giant build table, stocked with thousands of LEGO CITY bricks so kids can bring their ideas to life. At the end of the weekend, each store will have their own LEGO City of Tomorrow
