Best Lego City Train Sets 2020
Also, if you have small kids who are 2-5 years old, check out my other article that reviews the top Lego Duplo train sets.
Here we go to my reviews:
Lego City Passenger Train 60197
The first train Lego building kit 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.
Lego City Cargo Train 60198
The second Lego City train set on my list is another remote-controlled train model. It is the largest & the highest-valued set on this list, as it consists of 1,226 Lego bricks. It includes 4 cars, a cargo train, an armored truck, rail tracks and a control center. It also includes 6 mini figures: a crook, a security officer and 4 train workers. The locomotive is motorized and can be operated with a remote control. This set includes a high number of Lego train tracks; actually, there are 32 of them. In my opinion, this set would be a perfect Christmas gift for boys who are 6 years old or older.
Lego City High-Speed Passenger Train 60051
This is an older version of the first set on this list. The main difference is that this train is not yellow, but white. It is remote-controlled too and it is compatible with all the other sets mentioned in this article. The train features removable roofs on cars and locomotive. It also includes 3 minifigures, a traveler, a cyclist and a train driver. Each curved rail track is 5 inches long. The whole kit contains 610 pieces and is ideal for a kid of the age 6-12, like most of the other sets on this list.
Lego City Switch Tracks 60238
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.
Lego City Tracks 60205
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.
Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express 75955
The last set on my list is another train building kit, but this time it is not a Lego City set, but a Harry Potter theme Lego set. I wanted to include it in this list too, because it is a nice addition to all Lego train sets. The steam locomotive comes with the 9 ¾ platform as well. Minifigures include Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Trolley Witch and Remus Lupin. This Hogwarts Express train replica building set consists of 801 pieces and the final model is 18 inches long, 3 inches high and 1 inch wide.
Lego enthusiast, big Lego Technic fan. I have been blogging about Lego since 2017, when I started this blog. When I’m not writing an article for this blog or building a Lego set, I’m probably riding my bike. You can find out more about me here.
