A long long time leave the trainsaway from me, and this is a chance to pick it up again for a historicalexhibition in Hong Kong, “Our Tsim Sha Tsui, Past, Present, And Future”
The exhibition is now opening until 2nd September, showing thehistory of Tsim Sha Tsui, the products and photos at that time. And also ourfocus, the Lego models for 1970’s and Present Tsim Sha Tsui by Legend Bricks.
This locomotive and passenger car appear in the 1970’s model, making with8-stud wide. This model number has been made from Superb (also a train playerin HK in loving the 6-stud train cute version) before with green bricks and6-stude wide.
And, I start to make the train with 8-stud wide and follow the real colour ofthe train because of the real situation. I love following the real things! Thehistory part of the train has been presented by Superb, so I post the photos toprevent the duplication.
And the important thing is, thetrain is still here in Hong Kong TaiPo Market Train Museum for a permanentexhibition. You can refer the history there if you come / plan to come to HongKong in the future.
The train was very hard to built because the dark green Lego parts in Hong Kongwas so less, I only have :
1x2x2 and 1x2x3 window,
Supposing, the parts were not enough and not detail to built for atrain/locomotive.
So, let me show you the real things
Here’s the Lego version
Do you know where did the train appear in Hong Kong??
The answer is 1970’s Tsim Sha Tsui Station.
