LEGO Ideas: London Underground

London Underground

Mass transport at it’s best.

The LEGO Ideas London Underground project by creator LEGOverwatch brings the underground to life for tourists.

We are a fan of any and all kinds of LEGO projects. But sometimes we come across one that strikes a chord with us.

The London Underground, also known as The Tube, is a rapid transport system serving Greater London and adjacent countries. It is the first and the busiest metro system in the world transferring 5 million people daily.

The build consists of 3,000 pieces and comes with working escalator and subway train. Some of the finer details include a telephone booth, tickets and scanners, and train jackets.

Currently the set contains 3 minifigures with the potential for more.

 

The overall concept of the project is an interesting one. We love how the creator put the building on an angle. This offers a larger building on a smaller board, something that is useful to LEGO creators. 

What we really like is how this set could fit in with various other scenes. There is a potential that is only limited by spacing.

One thing we would love to see is the ability to add tracks to let the train circle about.
