Lego model of Nottingham Station on display at local museum

A new display at Nottingham Industrial Museum is a superb Lego model of Nottingham Station.

Tyler Lawler from Oklahama City in the USA made the model during the 2020 Covid lockdown from over 11,000 pieces of Lego.

He feels connected to Nottingham as his grandmother came from the city, plus he is an avid fan of Nottingham Forest and was a student at Nottingham University.

The station is his favourite building in the city.

It has been accepted into the permanent collection of Nottingham City Museums and Galleries.

During a short visit to the UK in April, Tyler re-assembled the model over two days, with the assistance of three friends from the USA, Justin Miller, Bob Hearne and Derek Oldham. They combined this with their real passion, soccer, by attending a Premier League match each day of their visit.

Chris Lilliman, Chairman of Nottingham Industrial Museum thanked Tyler for the model. Chris hopes the Lego model will bring visitors of all ages to the museum to see this and many other remarkable exhibits.
