New Powered Up LEGO City Trains Arrive

Two brand new LEGO® trains arrive today and they introduce the LEGO Powered Up system. This is an updated version of Power Functions. Which offers better connection, increased power and the ability to connect to smart devices, for expanded play functions. The trains themselves continue to use the same tracks and wheels, so if you already have any of the LEGO City trains products, you can pop these new trains on without any problems. The range includes a new Passenger Train which includes a mini platform and a selection of track. Plus a new Cargo Train, which is a little more detailed and includes addition vehicles. Both sets are available now from LEGO Brand Stores, and selected LEGO toy retailers. These new Powered Up LEGO City Trans can also be controlled by a companion app which adds even more control functions and additional features. Learn more about the app here. Don’t forget you also get double VIP points on all purchases this week.
