A local student is showing off his LEGO skills and they’re impressive.

On Thursday, February 16, TransLink shared on its Buzzer blog about a LEGO enthusiast’s replica buses.

According to Translink, Bowes took the bus with his mom growing up, which in part instilled a “lifelong interest in marketing and transit.”

He has been building 12 buses over the years that he continues to fine-tune and improve with extra details.





“The LEGO buses not only resemble the real-life ones in their livery (paint scheme), but they also feature many of the decals and ads you would find on a real bus,” said TransLink.

“It’s always continual improvement,” said Bowes. “They’re never done being built, but I would like to build a new trolley whenever that comes around in the future.”

One day, he wants to build a new battery-electric bus to add to his collection.

What do you think of these LEGO buses?
