Double Decker

Lego MAN A95 Bus RC

This slab of cream and brown magnificence is a MAN A95 double decker bus, resplendent in Hong Kong’s KMB livery, and it’s been built by Hong Kong resident and previous bloggee ShineYu.

With eight Power Functions motors hidden inside the huge body, ShineYu’s incredible A95 double decker bus not only looks superb but it functions wonderfully too. Two XL motors drive the MAN, whilst two Servos turn the two steering axles. A further four Medium motors power the automatic doors, all of which are controlled remotely.

There’s lots more to see of this seriously impressive build at the Eurobricks discussion forum, and you can see ShineYu’s KMB MAN A95 in action via the video below.

Double Decker

Lego Volvo Olympian Bus

We don’t feature as many Town scale vehicles as we do large Technic creations here at The Lego Car Blog, as it often takes more to impress at a smaller scale.* This though, is how you do it! Built by Legokinsfolk of Brickshelf this is a Volvo Olympian bus in Hong Kong specification, and it’s wonderful.

At 10 studs wide it’s pushing the limits for a Town creation, but it is mini-figure scale, and can seat 43 of them plus the driver across both decks. The doors and engine cover also open and the interior is quite brilliantly detailed. There’s lots more to see, including interior shots, on Brickshelf – click the link above to buy a ticket.

LeGoGo

Lego Technic Toyota Hiace GoGoVan

We’ve heard of the Toyota Hiace here at TLCB (because whilst the Hiace isn’t sold here, they are ubiquitous pretty much everywhere else in the world), but we hadn’t heard of GoGoVan. A straw poll in the office returned some fairly detailed knowledge of another word with ‘GoGo’ in front of it, but we can’t share that here.

Anyway, a bit of research later and it turns out that GoGoVan are an app-driven Hong Kong based logistics company, sort of like Uber for boxes, and their vehicle of choice is of course Toyota’s trusty Hiace.

Previous bloggee Shineyu has recreated the boldly-painted Toyota used by GoGoVan across Hong Kong perfectly in Technic form, and he’s packed it with working functions too. LEGO’s versatile Power Functions components are employed giving the Hiace remote control drive, steering and sliding doors.

Double Decker Dennis

Lego Alexander Dennis Envrio 500 Hybrid Bus

This spectacular Technic creation is an Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 bus, as used across the Chinese Island of Hong Kong.

Built by a small British company, rear-wheel-drive and with hybrid propulsion, the Envrio 500 is almost exactly the same as the McLaren P1 supercar. Apart from in every other way. This superb recreation comes from previous bloggee shinyu, and it’s packed with brilliant technical functionality. There’s remotely controlled drive and steering, active suspension that can raise and lower the entire bodywork to facilitate boarding, and motorised opening and closing doors.

You can join the discussion and see all the images at the Eurobricks forum – click the link above to buy your ticket.

Hong Kong Tramways

Lego Hong Kong Tram

Hong Kong’s public transport system is awesome. The taxis have self-opening doors, the ferries are wonderfully historic (and ridiculously cheap), and the trams are as beautiful as this. Thank the British Empire for much of that, which is all the more annoying that in actual Britain public transport costs around fifty times as much and is worse in every way.

Back to Hong Kong and this brilliant electric tram comes from Shineyu Yu. Built to Technic figure scale it includes remote control drive, working LED lights, rotating destination board and some beautifully engineered opening doors. Hop on board at either MOCpages or Eurobricks.
