Travel back in time to the 1900s to see a vintage steam tram working on a tramway. This wooden box on wheels was called an LNER J70 class tram locomotive. The set consists of the J70 locomotive hauling a brake van. The vehicle is a 0-6-0 Tram engine that hauls cars up and down branch lines and tramways, but in the LEGO model, the locomotive’s arrangement is a 0-4-0, like the LNER Y6 class. In the set, the engine is a shell of the locomotive because once a Powered-Up motor and hub are installed, you can have a lot of fun playing with it on either the Powered-Up app, or the remote control. This model was created using Studio 2.0.
I did this 685-piece project because I always love making locomotives out of LEGO pieces, and I am a huge fan of LEGO. This project will inspire steam enthusiasts and LEGO fans young and old the glory days of steam.
The J70 tram and brake van would be a great set because I would believe that fans of LEGO, LNER (London and North Eastern Railway), GER (Great Eastern Railway), steam locomotives, and trains would get the inspiration of using their creative imaginations to think up a good way to spend a train trip in the 1900s to the 1950s. Once I hit 10,000, the Tram will be a playable playset for everyone growing up.
