We’ll all be going loco for Lego
Historic stories told in railway’s model exhibition
An eight-metre long Lego model of a steam locomotive will be the centrepiece of an exhibition in Tenterden.
Bricks Britannia will open at Easter, on Saturday, April 1, at the town’s Kent and East Sussex Railway (KESR) station.
The model, built entirely out of Lego bricks, is of the famous steam locomotive the Flying Scotsman, with three Pullman carriages.
There will be over 30 stunning models at the exhibition – all created entirely from Lego – which chart the history of Britain from Neolithic Stonehenge through to the supersonic age of Concorde.
The models were created by Bright Bricks and use hundreds of thousands of Lego pieces.
A spokesman for the KESR said: “There’s also an opportunity to join our workshops where both young, and young at heart, can build their very own Lego steam locomotive and Pullman carriage.”
Entry to the Bricks Britannia exhibition is free when you buy an all-day travel card for the railway, which permits travel between Tenterden and Bodiam stations.
Fares also include free entry into the Colonel Stephens Railway Museum, which has a huge collection of memorabilia.
Tickets are £18 for adults, £12 for children and £38 for families. To book visit www.kesr.org.uk/ bricks
