Photos: Richmond's "Lego Man" builds Steveston Tram, barn

The man who brought you Steveston Buddhist Temple and McDonald's on No. 3 Road has recreated the historic tram and barn

Richmond’s resident “Lego Man” has released photos of his latest creation from the famous children’s brick.

Peter Grant recently finished recreating the historical Steveston Tram and barn, the real version of which sit proudly at No. 1 Road and Moncton Street in the village.

Grant was commissioned by the City of Richmond to bring the tram and its barn to life in Lego.

A few weeks ago, Grant finished the 9,600-piece Steveston Buddhist Temple, which took three years, on and off, to build.

Grant often spends months and years sourcing the exact pieces of Lego from around the globe to make sure his creations are as close to the real thing as possible.

He has been responsible over the last decade or so for recreating some of the city’s most iconic and historic buildings, using only the tiny bricks and pieces from the children’s favourite toy.

His works have included the likes of Branscombe House, Steveston Post Office and even Canada’s original McDonald’s at No. 3 Road and Granville Avenue, many of which are on display right now at the Steveston Tram barn.
