The Train Show 2015

Hi All of you,
This is our next big show, at the Juan de Fuca Rec Centre, on the 24th of May. The show runs 10 am – 4 pm, Adults $7, Youth (11-16) $3, Family $14, Children under 8 free with an adult. There will be a fairly complicated track plan for this year, involving 6 bridges and 2 grade crossings. (and hopefully, no minifig carnage !)

Artist Love Hultén has created these amazing 6:1 recreations of classic LEGO elements, complete with working electronics inside. 

So beautiful

So nostalgic!
