Magical set - just 1 thing left to do, add power!
This is a great rendition of Hogwarts Express, here is how to motorise and light it if you're interested!

I'm pleased to say it is really easy, here are the Powerfunctions parts required:

- Battery box (88000 batteries, or 8878+45517 for mains power)
- 8884 IR Receiver
- 88002 Train Motor
- 8879 Controller
- 8870 lights + 4 Pick A Brick parts as shown (optional)
- Track!

Simply remove the wheel base from the engine tender, the black plate top of it and the fireplace from the engine.

The train motor becomes the base of the tender as shown. Re-add the 4 dark grey 2x1 bricks from the tender to the base to act as supports for the rest of the tender assembly. Also add the engine and passenger car couplings to the train motor. Place your battery box in the tender and the IR Receiver in the engine cab.

For the power, connect your IR Receiver to your battery box. Your IR Receiver has 2 ports, add the train motor's plug to one and the optional lights to the other.

You're good to go!

Great Model
When I first saw the Hogwarts Express, I knew I had to have it. A few back order later and it finally arrived. Love the look of the train!

Have to say this set appears to not have been made to be used on a track. The stock version I see better used for a kid to play with on a flat surface rather than a track, or a really good model on a shelf. However, if you are planning to place this on a track like I was, some very small and easy modifications need to be made. I found when the train was turning, the front set of wheels would connect with the second set of larger wheels and would cause a lot of drag. Also the back car's wheel don't turn like the city sets trains, also causing additional drag.

Being in the way I have it on a track, I had to add power functions. I prefer the original PF, and adding PF to the train was not overly hard, although modifications need to be made.

Not sure how LEGO feels about me modifying all 3 cars and posting about it, but its still a great train, great look, and still a good value on the cost.

Great set for any HP fan with lovely detail
My husband and I are huge LEGO and Harry Potter fans, so this purchase was a given. The overall build quality truly does exceed expectations, there is a level of detail in the train that really makes it feel like a Harry Potter theme rather than a normal train build.

Little touches that we enjoyed were the crank motion on the wheels as they turned, the fire in the furnace, all the internal levers, and the printing of the all important Hogwarts Express logo on the front. The personnel carriage was a fun little build and adds to the playability with only one niggling point for us being the difficulty to place the piece that holds carriage wheels on the bottom (the black axel piece). I can't see how a child would have the strength to push those pieces in place. The train also comes with no tracks, which we found a bit unusual, but the optional locking of the front track alignments means it can be played with while not using any tracks.

The platform is where the set shines, with a clock with hands that can ben moved, the spinning wall between platforms 9 and 10 that minifugures with carts can go through, and probably my favourite detail, the printed newspapers in the moveable newspaper stand.

Minifigure-wise, everyone looked great, with a special shout out for the new Dementor who looks incredible. I just wish there was more than one of him in the set.

We've made some minor additions such as smoke for the smoke stack, some simple track for the train to sit on and soon a boiler plate cover the for the fire which can be moved up and down.

Yay!!! Harry Potter is back!!!
My son (who is about to turn 5) and I LOVE this set! It is super detailed and has great Minifigures & the train itself is so cool! You can take the seating area apart easily for play and we love all the details. Chocolate frog, Sirius Black wanted poster and "The Boy Who Lived" newspapers are a great touch. Looking forward to the other Harry Potter sets we backordered :)

Hogwarts Express Disappointed Design Issues
Well a massive Harry Potter LEGO fan here, really disappointed in the overall design & finish of this train.

PROS: Station is amazing that is about all, I did like the dementor which you can see has been copied from the Pirates of the Carribean, Silent Mary set oh and the stickers were cool too.

CONS: it's unpractical and several faults which ill explain in more detail.
Carriage Connection: they have moved away from the easy magnet connect system that works so well on all their other LEGO train sets making it easy to pull apart and change where you put the rail carriages.

Wheels: Seriously why... The Middle wheel doesn't even turn when rolling along on surfaces. due to the design, it is NOT COMPATIBLE with any of the LEGO train tracks so its pretty much a train that doesn't need trains.

4708 Hogwarts Express still be the best LEGO Harry Potter train they have designed and would recommend anyone buying that over this any day. Even if you have to buy it on eBay second hand.

Hope you enjoyed my review!
Sorry, it wasn't the one I wanted to write but I guess its an honest one.
