Lego 75955 – Hogwarts Express

I’m not a particular fan of the Harry Potter sets, but I couldn’t be indifferent to this new train, the Hogwarts Express. The new Wizarding world set features a new Locomotive with a carriage, a nice but very particular railway station, and six mini-figures (Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Remus Lupin, Trolley Witch and Dementor) with assorted accessories, in a total of eight hundred and one pieces.
