LEGO 60050 New Train Station 2014 Review

At last! I built and review the new LEGO Train Station that was released with the new LEGO 2014 Trains: The High Speed Passenger Train and the Cargo Train.

If you follow The Technic Gear you may recall that I built something quite close a few months ago. I will compare this LEGO model with what I built using it as a reference.

Model background

Browse the shops while you wait at the busy LEGO City Train Station!

Take a taxi to the busy LEGO City Train Station, a place that never sleeps! On arrival, go up the stairs and through the opening doors. Check the time on the large clock hanging from the roof and the map of train services by the ATM. While you wait for your train, browse around the shop selling LEGO® City products. Feeling hungry? Head to the kiosk and order a croissant or pizza and a drink from the menu signs hanging above the desk. Then take a seat on the clean platform, enjoy your snack and relax. Includes 5 minifigures: conductor, chef, taxi driver and 2 travelers.

Model Box

Not as big as the LEGO Train boxes, this Train Station comes with a decent box that as usual is almost empty.

On the back of the box you have lots of images of the station as well as that lovely diorama of LEGO Trains. I must try to build it someday.

Manuals

This set comes with three manuals. One to build the taxi and two to build the station.

Building experience

This set has a decent amount of parts but it won’t suppose a challenge to you. In fact when I built my own version of this LEGO Train station I used more parts to build the walls.

The set is big ( for so little parts ) and as usual you have here the compulsory timelapse building.

Complete model

Here is the complete model.

Taxi

The taxi is very similar to the old Train station’s taxi. Personally I don’t like at all the fact that both cars are one minifig-wide.

Train station

The train station has three different parts. On the right, there is a restaurant with a chef and something that looks like pizza… definitively the chef should be fired!.

On the left, there is a LEGO shop with several LEGO boxes. The result is quite interesting.
