You can’t build a prosperous city without a fast and modern rapid transport system. As long as public buses remain one of the most popular means of transportation, bus stops need to be regularly upgraded as well. Sergey Antokhin brings public stops to the next level with this very good-looking combo of a stop and an info stand. This design is so clean and simple, it’s hard to believe you need no more than a hundred LEGO pieces to decorate your city street with a public area like this one. Bonus points are for a very smart choice of pieces for the paving: ingot tiles in light bluish gray interspersed with jumper tiles help create a very lifelike pattern.
You may know them as trams, streetcars, or trolleys. But these seemingly old forms of public transport are increasingly being found in our cities and towns once more. San Francisco is famous for them, but Edinburgh, Sofia, Helsinki, Rome and many more cities have trams running through their streets. David FNJ has built a lovely dark red tram pulling into a small stop, decorated with a bench and some pretty flowers. The tram is beautifully shaped with lots of curves, and the builder has utilised a great combination of highlight colours in the form of Bright Light Orange and Medium Dark Flesh.
I’m not massively sold on the conical trees, but the little stop is a nice addition to set the scene while we wait for the next tram to arrive.
