LEGO® Set 4758 – Hogwarts Express (2nd Edition)

Rochelle September 15, 2015 @ 5:55PM

This is the second version of the train that takes students to and from Hogwarts. I've got to be honest - this train appears to be almost identical to the first version, which you can see here, which just a few exceptions.

The differences seem to be in the minifigs and the train station. The first edition of the Hogwarts Express included yellow minifigs of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger. You can reenact the train ride from the first story with this set.

Included in this version are flesh colored minifigs of Harry, Ron, Remus Lupin, and four Dementors. With this set you can act out the train ride from the third movie, right down to the chocolate bar (yes, there's a chocolate bar brick!) that Professor Lupin gave to Harry after the Dementors entered the train as they searched for Sirius Black.

Then there is Platform 9-3/4. The train station in the first edition was different than this one. It was larger and had more detail than the station included with this set.

There is something that I want to point out to any of you who are thinking about buying this set. I read a review from someone who said that the wheels used on this train do not fit on LEGO® train tracks. According to the review, the two trains that do fit the tracks are sets 10132 and 4841.
