LEGO 4708 Hogwarts Express is a 410 piece Harry Potter set released in 2001. It is the first set of the Hogwarts Express train made, and contains a model of the express itself, Platform 9¾, as well as three minifigures: Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and Harry Potter. While the Hogwarts Express is featured in every one of the books and most movies, this particular representation of the train is based on its appearance in the first installment of the franchise, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Platform 9¾ is covered by a roof and features a portion of a wall, which contains a revolving wall segment to recreate the scene where Harry passes through the wall to enter the secret platform. This revolving segment has a sticker with a ticket machine on one side.There is also a dustbin with a broom, a lamp, and a signpost with the number "9¾" on it. Other items found on the platform comprise a baggage cart with suitcases, a hand truck and a luggage tray with a book. The Hogwarts Express consists of a steam locomotive and a rail coach. The locomotive's boiler segment is hollow and can be accessed by flipping up its top. Inside is a treasure chest with keys and a mechanism with a spring that is connected to a lever in the cab. When the lever is pushed upwards, the spring is released and an arm pushes out the chest of luggage. The rail coach has enough space for all three minifigures to sit inside. The top part with the roof and the window rows can be detached to access the interior.
The three included minifigures represent Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger. Hermione wears her pre-sorting school uniform while Ron and Harry wear casual clothing. The set also includes Hedwig, Scabbers, a spider, and Trevor. Please note that this Hogwarts Express train model is not powered, nor does it work with LEGO brand train tracks from other sets. Brand New, Factory Sealed set.
