Now that winter is upon us (at least for us on the Northern hemisphere…), don’t you just long for a trip to a more tropical climate, where you can relax by the pool? This waterpark built by Legopard sure makes me long for that… Just look at those palm trees, giving the tropical feel, and those lovely swimming pools to take a dip in when getting too hot. And I’m sure they have refreshing drinks and ice cream at the bar. There’s even some fun slides for the kids.
Henrik Hoexbroe has created a lovely diorama of a French town – Royville – in the 1960s. It features – among others – an art-deco style petrol station, a Citroën car dealer, a hotel, and a train station. It’s very much ‘alive’ because of the many little scenes and Henrik’s brilliant car MOCs.
Legolas73 is starting to become a regular feature here on Classic-Town – which is no wonder, considering the reception of his MOCs on Eurobricks. After showing us around his Meridional Neighbourhood a couple of months ago, he now takes us for a walk along the canals of Venice.
As to just how accurate this portrayal of the ancient city is – I’ll be able to pass judgement in a few months, when I’m back from Venice myself. Even now though I can say that I applaud the daring decision to try and capture the atmosphere of one of the world’s most renowned tourist destinations in bricks.
As we continue the journey in the Brick Adventure 2011 LEGO Event, we have found another contributor and a member of Eurobricks to share with us his mega Japan Railway Kyoto Station. You ought to take a moment to view all of the beautiful details with close proximity. Thanks PrinceWilliam for showcasing the oriental approach of rail transportation.
Onboard the Kyoto Express
In case you did not notice, his MOC comes in day and night version!
This is not going to be a single LEGO building creation feature but instead I am intending to share this town settings with our Classic-Town.net readers.
Done by our new Eurobricks Town member, Legolas73, this incredible Meridional Neighbourhood is filled with vibrant bright colours which complements different buildings altogether. Take your time and walk through these beautiful images of each unique building in the neighbourhood.
Many LEGO fans have applauded LEGO’s return to creative building over the past couple of years, with the Creator Houses line being a prime example. Eurobricks Town Moderator TheBrickster wonders whether they go well with LEGO’s City theme and are suitable for inclusion in Town layouts with or without modifications.

Fellow blogger Dave, one half of the team that makes up ToT-LUG along with his lovely wife and LEGO Ambassador Stacy, spent the weekend at the 2010 La Crosse Model Railroad Show.
See it all!
Also in attendance were GMLTC and B&J Railroad. Oh, and the local news channel who decided to do a story on the show and interview Dave as you can see above. Pretty impressive, eh? Head over to Eurobricks to catch a link to the video and then say a few words to Dave about his awesome weekend, ok?
Eurobricks member and Northern Illinois Lego Train Club’s (NILTC), Pepa Quin has shared with us his latest exhibit, known as the “Ladies’ Night at the Palace Hotel Ballroom” which was unveiled recently at the public library at St. Charles, Illinois, United States.
Inspired by the movie The Blues Brothers, this is an exciting scene where the duol finished their concert and dashed out of the building to avoid being caught by the authorities.
