Quoted from an ongoing Eurobricks Train Tech discussion forum. The new recent discovery of the unexpected 3677 LEGO Cargo Train set was spotted in LEGO World 2011 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The new 3677 LEGO Cargo set
More images can be found here. What do our fellow readers think? I, for one never expect to see a new Cargo Train to be scheduled for the 2011 releases. It certainly looks appealing with all of the train elements together.
When I saw Brickshelf user, legofrik’s classic town cars cargo on rail transportation, the simplicity of the design of the cargo trailer and the various Classic Town cars design simply made me wants to find out where the cargo is heading to.
Bringing Classic Town cars across the country
Brickshelf member, Monteur has built a massive looking open freight shed to house the freights in a secured shelter. The size of the shed is so big which can even handle freights coming from the rapid rail transportation services.

Eurobricks member, Cooper’s latest creation has certainly impressed me much with this nice classic looking Yellow Container Truck. Do you feel this creation reminds you of something familiar?

The new 2010 Power Function (PF) trains have arrived and thanks to Eurobricks Fellow, Holodoc for sharing with us this remarkable 7939 Cargo Train.
7939 Cargo Train
This amazing set is equipped with high playability features such as the main engine compartment, tanker wagon, containers wagon, cars wagon, cargo crane, cargo truck, 4 minifigures and a whole load of rail tracks. Apart from the expensive price listing, this Cargo Train set is truly enjoyable and could be integrated with its 2006 predecessor, 7898 Cargo Train Deluxe.
Do you ever wonder what is the mode of transportation for your official Shop@Home LEGO purchases? I strongly believe one mode of transportation is by using this long yellow container trucker which is also known as the 3221 City Truck. Thanks to Eurobricks member, der seb for sharing this remarkable review with us.
3221 City Truck
The front of the truck is unlike the other City Container Trucks which you have seen before. This design is pretty much different and realistic looking. In addition, you may even noticed that this truck even comes with LEGO Miniatures sets.
In the year of 1991, Maritime is one of the biggest transportation development inside Classic Town, and there is a big transformation and emphasis to construct a full-service commercial port to serve the rising demand of exports and imports of a country via the mode of sea transportation.
The first one of the kind, full-service Port, is known as the 6542 Launch and Load Seaport represents a busy buzzing icon for many of us residing at the bay. We will have to thanks to Eurobricks Reviewer Academy student, paanjang16 for completing and sharing with us, a detailed review of the port facility.
6542 Launch and Load Seaport
Many might not be aware, that this Classic Town set, can be considered for classification as part of the Classic Town, LEGEND, equivalent to the air transportation counterpart, 6597 Century Skyway airport in 1994. This renowned sea port was the first Classic Town set to break the 1000 bricks piece count.
If you have never own this set like myself, I am very certain, after viewing this review, you will probably be searching inside BrickLink or eBay.
Every town needs a cargo center to deliver goods to all of its loyal Minifig citizens. And inside that cargo center are the unsung heroes of package delivery…the forklifts. MOCPages user Marin Stipkovic has built this cute pair of forklifts for an upcoming Club Kockice Town display. Not only are they adorable, but the design of the front forks is a great departure from the use of the “standard” LEGO forks.
Check out Marin’s MOCPage for more pictures of these great creations!
Forklifts Hard at Work!
Maersk has always been part of Lego since Classic Town. Lego town fan Andybear revisits the relationship in his recent creation, a nicely designed Maersk Truck. The Maersk containers on the trailer are even removable for loading on trains and ships.
Suckerpunch83 transports his freight Classic Town style with this outstanding Container Truck. I can just envision this truck on its way to a sea port for a crane to lift up the cargo.
