LEGO Loco gives children the chance to assemble their own fully operational train set on a computer, based on the LEGO SYSTEM Trains range. The network is built with track sections, carriages, engines and LEGO people to travel in them. Once children have designed a network they can enjoy playing the miniature trains, tinkering with points and signals, and seeing passengers embarking and disembarking. A unique feature of this product is its clever use of Local Area Networks and the Internet allowing trains to be dispatched to other users. Children can also design postcards that can be carried on trains and dispatched to other LEGO Loco users around the world.
