LEGO Ideas The Train Station: Studgate Gets 10K Support

The Train Station: Studgate

Another LEGO Ideas product idea qualifies for the First 2020 Review Stage. Following the initial success of Mary Poppins Cherry  Tree Lane, the Tesla Cybertruck, Untitled Goose Game, and the UCS Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,  we now have the Train Station: Studgate by Bricky_Brick as the next 10K qualifier for this review stage.

If you recall Bricky_Brick (or Pablo Jimenez in real life) is the creative genius behind the previously approved and upcoming LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay back in September from last year. He is also the creator of the LEGO Ideas History Museum which is now currently in review during the Second 2019 LEGO Review Stage. The results of this review stage are expected to come in by next week.

Pablo, as prolific builder and contributor over at the LEGO Ideas platform, has once again entered the elite circle of 10K qualifiers for the third time, getting the support of more than 10,000 members of the LEGO fan community for his Train Station: Studgate. Here’s how Pablo describes his next creation.

The Train Station: Studgate

Hello traveler, welcome to Studgate, the main station of the city and with the largest number of visitors, thousands of minifigures pass through this station every day.

Seventeenth-century concept station with new modern acquisitions, large glazing to gain more light and computer systems for ticket access.

The station has three heights, at its base an access for the first floor or terrace and the entrance with access for disabled people that leads to the platform. Once there, the platform allows access through the footbridge. For disabled people, there is a gangway system coordinated with trains to access the other side of the platform.

The glass dome (piece 2409) and the large glazed surfaces (piece 2408) are a tribute to the large space sets of the late 80s and early 90s, in this case, I have taken the liberty of making it transparent without dyes.

I also make a small tribute with the permission of the creators to a set that I have a lot of love (6601-1) Ice Cream Cart.

With some hesitation, I decided to include the train to give more gameplay and I think it’s a good option, with the train the project is at the limit of the number of pieces allowed but acquires greater value and logic for a train station.

It is a modern electric style train, with ease to adapt an engine, ease to include the wheelchair and several minifigures thanks to the folding roof.

They are 7 characters that accompany us.

1. Stationmaster:
2. Train driver
3. Girl in a wheelchair
4. Mother of the girl in the wheelchair
5. Staff on the ice cream stall
6. Carefree traveler
7. Business traveler

I can only say that I hope you like it, and if so, do not hesitate to vote for it. It will be an honor to see you pass through the station. Thank you very much for your support and confidence

Congratulations to Pablo and here’s to more exemplary builds to come!
