The Hogwarts Express runs between London, Kings Cross Station Platform 9 ¾ and Hogsmeade Station in the Harry Potter movie franchise. The Express dutifully carries students to and from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at the start and end of every term. Originally steam fitted by the Muggles (non-magic people) who built it, the Hogwarts Express now runs exclusively on magic.
This 5 piece model train consists of five 4" x 4" steel sheets from which individual parts can be removed to assemble a museum quality model using tabs and holes.
This Freight Train set includes 5 train cars including the Diesel Locomotive, Gondola Car, Box Car, Hopper Car and Off Center Caboose. The connected model length is 17 inches.
The Steam Locomotive is a train that produces its power from a steam engine. The train must carry its water either in the locomotive itself or in an attached car behind the locomotive. The steam is produced by burning coal, wood or oil. Steam engines dominated railway transportation from the early 19th century through the middle of the 20th century.
