Embark on a magical journey to the Wizarding World with the UGEARS Hogwarts™ Express, a remarkable working model train inspired by the enchanting universe of Harry Potter. Join Harry, Hermione, and Ron as they set off for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry aboard this special wooden model train. Departing from King's Cross Station in London and heading to Hogsmeade Station near Hogwarts Castle, this exquisite model features a spring-powered locomotive, a coal tender, and a passenger carriage, where the three young wizarding heroes are preparing for their next adventure.
To set the Hogwarts™ Express in motion, wind it up using the provided key, then twist the smokestack Start/Stop switch. Marvel at the mesmerizing motion of the locomotive's gears, wheels, and connecting rods as it chugs ahead. This 3D wooden model train can travel up to 4 meters (with tender and carriage) or 6 meters (locomotive only) on smooth, flat surfaces. It also includes a section of track and a Platform 9¾ buffer stop, making it an elegant static display piece.
The locomotive can be run independently or coupled with two cars—a coal tender and a passenger carriage. The tender features an empty coal compartment suitable for storing the train's winding key or other small items. The passenger carriage comprises three compartments, three opening doors, and a removable roof, offering the flexibility to place the figurines of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ronald Weasley on mounts that move side-to-side as the train moves. These character figurines can also be positioned next to the train for a static display, as if they are awaiting their journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The locomotive is the heart of this model, powered by a metal spring engine that transfers power to the moving wheels. Winding the locomotive is simple, using the provided key (winding slots are available on both the left and right sides of the engine). Before winding, ensure the smokestack is in the "Stop" position. After winding, hold the model and turn the smokestack to the "Start" position, then release it to watch the train move forward in a straight line. Observe the beautiful wheels and coupling rods of the train engine in action!
This DIY model train is a faithful recreation of the "GWR 5972 Olton Hall" locomotive from the Harry Potter movie series, set in the magical universe created by J.K. Rowling. The assembly is rated as "Advanced" with an estimated construction time of 7 hours. The locomotive can be assembled in approximately 3 hours, providing a head start for imaginative play.
