Best Lego Train Sets

by Last Updated: Mar 23, 2023All Legos, Featured

Lego train sets are very popular. And just like car Lego models, they are the favorite Lego sets for many boys and girls. In case you prefer cars over trains, check out my other car Lego models article on this blog. And if you prefer trains, read on this article, as I’m going to list 9 top Lego City train sets that you can currently buy.

Here we go to my reviews:

1. Lego City Freight Train 60336


Lego Freight Train Set


If you are fascinated by trains, this building kit is made for you! It includes a locomotive, cargo wagon, open wagon, and a double-deck auto carrier. The locomotive is equipped with the Lego® Powered Up technology thanks to which you can control the train via the remote control or via the app installed on your smart device.

The box contains 33 track pieces (16 curved, 16 straight and one track switcher) with which you can build a complex rail network for even better experience. Furthermore, there are six minifigures to play with, stacker for loading the cargo onto the train and two electric vehicles included.

2. Lego City Express Passenger Train 60337


Lego Express Passenger Train


Immerse yourself with this building kit into the world of high-speed trains. This Lego set contains a bullet locomotive and two wagons – a passenger and a dining car. You will also find a station platform, six minifigures and 24 track pieces in the package.

Lego included the Lego® Powered Up technology in the building kit so you can drive the locomotive via remote control or via an app. This locomotive has even dimmable headlights which can be controlled also in the app.

To make everything even more realistic Lego included many accessories like a laptop, bike, briefcase, backpack, wheelchair and even a hot dog which can be sold in the dining car.

3. Lego City Passenger Train 60197


Lego City Passenger Train Set


The third Lego train set on my list is a pretty large train model. It contains 677 pieces and it also features a 10-speed Bluetooth remote control. Using it you can operate the train, as it is motorized. Besides the train, this set includes configurable circular track, signals and platform. It includes 4 minifigures, too: a train conductor, a train attendant and 2 passengers. This set is an ideal gift for both boys and girls of the age 6-12 that like trains.

4. Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition 76405


Lego Hogwarts Express Train Set


Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition is the ideal set for any adult Harry Potter fan (17+), who also loves Lego. The set with 5,129 pieces is perfect for building and displaying. The attention to detail on the Hogwarts Express train is truly extraordinary. It comes with intricate features such as train engine with a brick-built tender, a carriage with 3 rooms revealing 3 unforgettable film scenes and the Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross Station. The set also includes 20 minifigures representing the most remarkable characters such as Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Professor Lupin, and even a Dementor. The minifigures are very precise, with true facial expressions and accessories. Also check an older version of the Hogwarts Express that I will mention later in this article.

Dimensions: over 10.5 in. (26 cm) high, 46.5 in. (118 cm) long and 8 in. (20 cm) wide

5. Lego City Switch Tracks 60238


Lego Switch Tracks


This Lego set is a complementary one because it includes neither a train, nor a locomotive. It includes only tracks that you can use to extend another train set. It includes 2 switch tracks and 4 curved tracks. So, this Lego kit can be used together with other original Lego sets. In total, this small set consists of just 8 parts. I recommend buying this set as an add-on to another train set that contains the train.

6. Lego City Tracks 60205


Lego Train Tracks Set


This set is another additional train track Lego set on my list. It contains 20 pieces and all of them are train tracks. Mainly, they are 8 flexible tracks, 8 straight tracks and 4 curved tracks. This Lego set, just like the other one mentioned above it, is an ideal Lego model as an addition to another train building kit. So, if you are buying your kids a set from this list, consider adding one of these two to your cart as well. Your kids will appreciate it, as they will have more railway Lego tracks to play with.

7. Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express 75955


Lego Harry Potter Train Set


This Lego set is one of the building kits from the Harry Potter collection. It has 801 Lego bricks, and it is perfect for all Lego fans from eight to fourteen years. You can build the Hogwarts Express train and a part of King’s Cross Station with this building kit. The train has a carriage with four seats, a removable side panel, and a roof. The King’s Cross Station features the iconic Platform 9 ¾ – the platform from which all Hogwarts Express trains depart. The station has also many details like a railway bridge with a clock or the wall which can be passed to get to the Platform 9 ¾. The building kit includes five minifigures; Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Remus Lupin, and the Trolley Witch – and many other accessory elements.

8. Lego Hidden Side Ghost Train Express 70424


Lego Ghost Train Express


This next Lego model on my list is a haunted train toy for small kids. It is suitable for children that are 8 years old or older. This Lego building kit also features a mobile app using which your kids can explore ghosts on this Lego train. They can find and capture them. The model comes in 698 bricks and features five minifigures; Parker L. Jackson, Jack Davids, Chuck, Ms. Santos, and J.B. The dimensions of this Lego kit are 5 inches (15 cm) wide, 5 inches (14 cm) high, and 24 inches (61 cm) long. Overall, this could be a nice train action toy present for every boy or girl.

9. Lego Creator Expert Crocodile Locomotive 10277


Lego Crocodile Locomotive


The last set on my list is another train building kit, but again, it is not a Lego City set. Instead, it is a Lego Creator Expert theme set (if you want to see more Lego Creator Expert models, check out my other article with Lego Creator car sets). I wanted to include it in this list too, because it is a very nice addition to all Lego trains sets.

I recommend this detailed historical locomotive train Lego replica for all railway enthusiasts. It includes every possible detail like, for example, pantographs and side rods. It also comes with two minifigures. This building set consists of 1,271 pieces and the final model is 20.5 inches (52 cm) long, 6 inches (15 cm) high and 3.5 inches (9 cm) wide.


And this is the end of my list. If your kids love trains, consider one of the first 3 sets mentioned in this list. Also, consider the #4 and #5, the train tracks sets, using which you can extend your rail tracks. If you like vintage trains, consider the last one from my list. If I was buying a train set for my children, I would definitely combine at least 2 of them, as I would buy them the additional track sets to have more fun.
