Steph is making her LEGO childhood dreams come true one project at a time! First it was to establish a LEGO room in her house, followed by the ultimate Wall Control storage wall, and now--an elevated train track!
Did anyone see that one coming? I surely didn't know she had always coveted rooms with elevated train tracks since watching the movie Casper back in the 90s.
Since it is way too hot to work on anything outside, this was the perfect summer project. Follow along as we show you the build from beginning to caboose!
This is the LEGO Disney Train and Station set. The second car holds the battery pack that uses bluetooth to connect to the LEGO PoweredUp app on Steph's phone to control the train, and it plays the fun train sounds you hear in the video.
The train travels past three Florida theme parks: Disney's Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios Orlando, and Legoland Florida. We did build a riser for those Harry Potter Sets you see in the middle. And we made one more shelf to hold Steph's vintage Hogwarts express train from 2000, and her new Hogwarts express from 2020!
I don't have any childhood dreams that have come true that are quite as cool as Steph's, but I guess if I had to choose something that I always wanted it would have been a dedicated sewing/craft space. Once my kids moved out, that dream became a reality!
What was your childhood dream? Did you make it a reality? Please share in the comments below.
