Buy Lego RC Train Sets

Lego Trains is a large Lego Theme that was first produced in 1966 and has spawned loads and loads of different sub-themes. It started off in 1966 with 4.5/12 V Sets which lasted up until about 1986. From 1991 9V sets were produced but in 2006-7 Lego decided to merge the Trains into their Power Functions theme and to release Train sets based on the new electric LEGO Power Functions system. This started in 2009 with the release of The Emerald Night Collection.

Such is the interest in the whole Lego Train Genre that it has even produced it's own Quarterly magazine - "RailBricks" along with its own website www.railbricks.com. which has build instructions for different models based on various lego bricks and sets, Track Planning and Forums dedicated to Lego Train sets. It is also supported by the
International LEGO® Train Club Organization who are a bunch of Lego Train enthusiasts.

This hub will concentrate mainly on the new age of Lego Trains the Remote Control era starting 2007 and still running.The remote controlled trains get their energy from batteries on board and are controlled via a Infrared remote control.
