Flying Train

I don’t want LEGO to introduce more ordinary trains, I want them to make a flying train like this.

The video is outstanding for freakin’ 1902!

This is awesome. It would make a wonderful steampunk project. It reminds me of Disneyland’s Jules Verne, steampunkIsh, “Tomorrowland that never was”.

It has been done in Lego by AFOLs a number of times. This is one of the best versions - http://www.heinerberg.homepage.t-online.de/schweb.htm

They are all neat but the Fahrenheit 451 was always very cool. I loved the rounded shape and the drop down stairway.

Well, at least that explains why they built it and still keep it working 120 years later.
