A long long time leave the trains away from me, and this is a chance to pick it up again for a historical exhibition in Hong Kong, ížOur Tsim Sha Tsui, Past, Present, And FutureíĘ
The exhibition is now opening until 2nd September, showing the history of Tsim Sha Tsui, the products and photos at that time. And also our focus, the Lego models for 1970íŽs and Present Tsim Sha Tsui by Legend Bricks.
This locomotive and passenger car appear in the 1970íŽs model, making with 8-stud wide. This model number has been made from Superb (also a train player in HK in loving the 6-stud train cute version) before with green bricks and 6-stude wide.
And, I start to make the train with 8-stud wide and follow the real colour of the train because of the real situation. I love following the real things! The history part of the train has been presented by Superb, so I post the photos to prevent the duplication.
And the important thing is, the train is still here in Hong Kong TaiPo Market Train Museum for a permanent exhibition. You can refer the history there if you come / plan to come to Hong Kong in the future.
The train was very hard to built because the dark green Lego parts in Hong Kong was so less, I only have :
1x2x2 and 1x2x3 window,
Supposing, the parts were not enough and not detail to built for a train/locomotive.
So, let me show you what I have done.
