Set Description
Via Rail’s The Canadian is one of Canada’s most famous icons. Running from Toronto all the way to Vancouver, this 5 day train trip is one of the world’s longest train routes. The Canadian has been in operation since 1950 and still runs to this day. Featuring a Via Rail EMD F40PH-2D Locomotive and 3 unique train cars, The Canadian makes the ultimate LEGO train set.

This locomotive pulls 3 train cars: the baggage car, the Chateau sleeper car, and the Skyline dome car. Each train car has fully functional interiors to accommodate the minifigures on their travels.

This set is the ultimate gift for fans of travel, trains, models, and of course fans of LEGO. Even older adults with little-to-no LEGO experience will be impressed by the level of detail in this product.
