Via Rail Canada train


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

This is a Via Rail Canada train. It is a model of a real train and it runs across Canada through mountains.

The features are:
A motorized locomotive,
Detailed cars (Park car and Panorama car) and locomotive (F40PH-2),
A bridge,
Removable roof of the cars,
And a detailed interior of the cars.

I built this because I was inspired by another build on this website. The build was based on the same train that I have built and it was called VIA Rail Canada-the Canadian.I've always wanted to build a Canadian LEGO train so I decided to build it after I saw the other build that inspired me.

But the build wasn't without problems, once I  built the end car (the Park car)  I started running out of light grey pieces. So I was looking for a  car which didn't require light grey pieces. I eventually came across the VIA Rail Canada panorama car. That was white with green graphics. After I made that, I was looking for a locomotive, and I found a F40PH-2 locomotive. This is a un-refurbished model. 

I think it will make a great  LEGO set because there is no other Canadian LEGO train and barely any LEGO trains are based on  real locomotives. I think this is a shame, because there are lots of fans of trains but can't get them in sets.

Thank you to my sister for helping me with the fantastic background.
