In Pictures: Regent Street’s Lego Bus Stop

31 comments

Occasionally here at LR Towers, amidst the weighty discussions and regular hunts for stray crayons that have managed to creep into the building, we do try and lighten the office mood by trading the strangest transport-related images that have landed in our collective inboxes that week.

Mostly these are infographics of somewhat dubious accuracy produced by travel firms, but occasionally there are things that genuinely make us smile at the ingenuity. Today’s felt particularly special, and so we decided that we would take the unusual step of sharing it with a wider audience.

You will thus find below pictures of the latest, fully functioning, temporary bus stop to be added to the TfL network. This was installed ahead of this Sunday’s Regent Street Bus Cavalcade, which will feature a number of buses from the earliest horse-drawn model of the 1820s, right up to the New Routemasters of today as part of this year’s “Year of the Bus” celebrations.

It is constructed entirely of Lego.
