I am the same nut-job parent who reviews many of the other Lego trains on Amazon. So while I am partial to Lego, I'll give you as good a review as I can.
The Public Transport set is supposed to be an exclusive set sold only through Toys R Us and Lego. Some smaller retailers have gotten a hold of it. The set itself was the result of a customer vote among three City themed sets.
The centerpiece of the set is a smart, blue and white, three-section light-rail train. The vehicle uses Lego's small train wheels; this makes for a more compact design, but these wheels have higher friction than the standard wheels and cannot be powered. The wheels fit Lego's L-gauge track (used by all of the other Lego trains). You don't need track for this vehicle but I find the kids enjoy running it on a layout as a push train. The three sections of the train are connected with four ball and socket joints. The center segment sports an ingenious design feature: the wheels can slide sideways in order to accommodate track geometry on turns. I very much like that Lego has bothered to make a light-rail train. I'm not entirely enamored with the design, however. It is unusually tall, such that when placed next to full size trains, it can come out taller (in spite of its low-to-the-ground appearance).
There are three road vehicles: a green and white touring coach, an orange and white street sweeper, and a yellow convertible. I think the coach is the best bus that Lego has ever offered (and it is arguably a notch better than the light-rail train). The street sweeper is capable and has sides that lift up.Read more ›
I set it up alongside our Lego cargo plane. It helps set the atmosphere for the outside of a bustling airport. I especially love the little touches in the gift store (like the card rack), the recycle bin...The street sweeper is very cool in addition to both buses a yellow car a coach-type bus and a trolley-like train. 6 minifigs included (3 of them have HAIR instead of merely hats-yeah)! My daughter loved the girl with flowing hair included in that count.
Since we don't have painted or baseboard streets (most sets sit on carpet in a room), it is important that these medians manage to set (ground) the main road of our city.
Witnessing the instant transformation helps to educate our children in how it is the little things that help make a city come "alive." Lego City Public Transport creates instant bustle...
This was a much-needed addition to our small-town collection.
