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.

The Vintage Locomotive looks absolutely beautiful! With a nice color scheme, mixing red and black, it shows a long steam engine with some pretty golden pieces on top.

New Lego City Trains Revealed

A couple of official pictures of the new city trains have finally been revealed, showing the new passenger train (60197) as well as the new cargo train (60198).

The cargo train is considerably bigger with more than a thousand and two hundred pieces and will also present a cargo truck, five mini-figures, a forklift and a new control tower. And, of course, plenty of new details and feature to enjoy, namely the new wagon with a crane!
