Set Description

Via Rail Canada’s The Corridor is an inter-city train line that connects cities such as Windsor, Toronto, Montreal, Kingston, Ottawa, and Quebec City.  This iconic North American train is a fan-favorite version of the EMD F40PH-2D locomotive. These classic train locomotives were used by Via Rail since 1986 and are still in service today.

This locomotive pulls two Bombardier LRC (Light Rapid Comfortable) passenger cars with 2 distinct classes: the regular Economy Class, and the luxurious Business Class. The passenger car’s side doors can open, and stair steps can flip down for ground access. Each LRC car also has its own galley, luggage rack, and restroom.

This set makes for a great souvenir for travelers as well as a great addition to a LEGO fan’s train/city layout. This set features many clever building techniques that  were used to capture a high-level of detail.

Features:
  • Train measures 85 cm long, 5 cm wide, 7 cm tall. 1402 pieces.
  • Most of the decorated pieces are printed, making for an easy-to-assemble model.
  • Includes F40PH-2D locomotive and two LRC passenger cars (economy and business class), and 6 minifigures (Engineer, Conductor, Steward, and 3 passengers)
  • Passenger car side doors can open, and roof lifts open for access to the interior. The passenger cars also feature steps that can flip down.
  • Compatible with the Powered UP 88009 Hub, 88001 Train Motor, 88005 Lights, and the Powered Up app.
  • Real sound effects (engine sound, bell, horn, doppler horn) from the Via Rail F40PH locomotive on the Powered Up app
