Peeron: Metro Park & Service Tower (#)
And thank you for sharing that lovely photo. I’ve posted shots of my WIPs in the past, and on many people have put notes on the Metro Park and Service Tower saying how it was their favourite part of the picture! I saved up my money, and bought. Released in The Netherlands in May ofthis was a flagship set of Town when it first came out.
Featuring six identical faces, the minifigs in this set are defined by their torsos. But now I found the stand on BrickLink, thanks for enlighting my day.

Despite owning this set for nearly twenty years, it appears I still missed some pieces in the instructions the first time around. Printed in a page, easy to store A4-sized booklet, building the main model takes only 15 steps.
It is now safely stored in my parent garage. Such a brilliant review of an epic classic town set.
It’s hard to judge this twenty years later, but when looking at the catalogue it appears this set really towered lwgo the rest in terms of price. The motorbike is next and there’s not much added other than a stand, a headlight and a taillight, but just having these lights adds a lot to the model.
It was one of the centerpieces of my Lego town Thanks a lot Rapseflaps for this: I can’t think of any off the top of the my head. It probably disappeared in there nearly 20 years ago. We end with putting in lamp posts, the workshop’s jack, flowers and a lovely little tree.

That being said, the first stage of the build immediately brings us one of the model’s main features: Leaving all the Thunderbirds -inspired demolition mayhem aside for a moment, the intact model offers plenty of play features as well. It’s unique, it’s classic I can’t say this set has ever been on my radar, but what I like most is the logical, ordered way that this set functions, like it’s ‘real world’ counterpart – something that often seems lacking in newer sets.
So some of my favourite eBay purchases have been these older sets with their original boxes and instructions. Luckily, my parents bought my Lego back then.
There’s a great amount of printed pieces and a notably different approach to stickering than we are used to today: There’s not a lot of complex building techniques in this model, but because of the many parts added leho each step and several submodels built upside down, it can be a bit more challenging than your average City build. The height of the building can be dizzying for some. This is my favorite Lego town set from my childhood and the biggest one too!
As such, you’ll have to make sure you take your time and scan the entire image for each step. Again, great review and thanks for putting this together! Notice the lovely printed tiles added as signage.
After spending all those hours on BrickLink you imagine you know all the parts by heart – but obviously not. Each step adds a single layer all around the model. Having it in the legk of your shops can lend your whole setup some added scale. And an excellent idea for TLG to revive and bring up to today’s City scale.
I love the simple charm of the older sets, with all the classic smiley faces. I’am a fan of the classic town Shell servo’s – being a former owner of a from ! It’s amazing how much of a difference 4-wide to 6-wide makes. Anyway, nice job, elgo a cool set. Also one of my favourite childhood set. The whole parking structure is built around cars this size and while the three passenger cars included in this set weren’t the biggest cars available at the lwgo, they usually didn’t get much larger than this either.
Fitting in with other shops and service sets like the more modest Service Station and the Bike Repair Shop it quickly became a centerpiece of citizen life in Lego Town. Eventually the airport and racer ,ego took over and was dropped as well.
