Best Lego Train Sets 2021
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 Passenger Train 60197
The first 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.
2. 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. And if you are looking for a different Lego City cargo train set, check out my other article in which I have compared this set with another Lego cargo train set as well.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express 75955
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.
7. Lego Hidden Side Ghost Train Express 70424
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.
8. Lego Disney Train and Station 71044
If you or your kids are Disney fans, this Lego model of the Disney train and train station would be an ideal gift for them. Or, for you, since this Lego set is suitable for all ages 12+. It also includes a Lego Powered Up motor, using which you can play sound effects and control the train with your mobile device. The whole set consists of 2,925 pieces, which makes it a pretty big one. Actually, it is the largest one from this whole list. It also includes five Lego Disney minifigures that are uniquely decorated. They include Chip, Dale, Goofy, Mickey Mouse, and Minnie Mouse. This Lego kid would be a perfect Christmas or birthday present for all Disney fans.
9. Lego Creator Expert Crocodile Locomotive 10277
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.
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.
