Lego Trains at my local Model Train Show

Post by Alcyone on Sun 04 Oct 2009, 1:31 pm

I went to my local train show today.
Thought I would put up a few pics / vids up for those who would be intrested.
The guy with the big lay out has been collecting lego for the past 15/20 years
Sorry about the poor quality of the video/pics.

Thats a lot of trains. It's interesting that there are very few custom models. Thanks for the photos.

That's a pretty cool amount of trains, but it's a little boring - all it is is track with a few sets inside it. Where are all the MOCs? Having said that, next time I'm in NZ I'm going to look that guy up!

I did a LEGO display at the Taupo Hobby Expo 2009 run by the local train club. I like lots of activity going on.

Hey, that's awesome! I saw that video on YouTube a while back, and I was quite impressed. Is this a group effort or just you? I'm very pleased that you have joined us Allan, welcome to ANZFOL!

Lego at local train shows'

Post by Bluerover on Wed 20 Oct 2010, 3:52 am

To those whom visit train shows I would check when the large model railway shows are on in your Capital Cities,as there have been very large and comprehensive Lego City displays in Sydney at the AMRA Liverpool model railway exhibition on the October long week end. There was also a similar large Lego layout in AMRA exhibitions in Perth and Melbourne earlier this year.
Worth seeing, will provide photos later.

The recent Liverpool LEGO layout was put on by our good friends from SydLUG, many who are members of this forum, and I'm sure MUGS was behind the Melbourne one. As there is a limited number of LEGO events in Australia (2), we have to make use of train shows to shareour hobby with the public. But hey, model railways are pretty cool too, and getting free tickets to check some of their stuff out... legohappy
