The operation of the front end.

The next build is the focus of the model: passenger compartment. It is the longest and most important section of the model set, which contains three scenes, corresponding to the 《Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone》, 《Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban》 and 《Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince》 in the plot of the train.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: the scene when the three main characters meet for the first time.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: When the Dementors are sucking Harry Potter's soul, Professor Lupin steps in to save Harry Potter.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince": Malfoy cast a spell on Harry Potter and was rescued by Luna after she found out.

The scene is fully displayed.

There are four paintings above the table in the passenger compartment, which are small surprises in tribute to the old Harry Potter set, as well as lines from the play on the stand.

Above each scene there is also a light that can be pressed to illuminate the scene.

There are several parts of the passenger compartment that can be easily removed so that you can give a view of the scenes inside the compartment. There is also a shock absorbing system inside the bottom wheels of the passenger compartment.

After the completion of the passenger compartment is the longest section of the entire set, and the first two sections of the functional carriage is not the same as this part can be said to be the scene carriage.

After the passenger compartment the whole train part is all done, put on the track has been able to see the full picture, really is a huge length.

The last is to build the platform, the bottom of the platform by the combination of 2 left and right symmetrical structure. The wall and doorway part is also symmetrical design, are X2 way of putting together, the structure is also relatively simple.

Finally, there are some small accessories, 2 are luggage for students to go to college and one is a vending cart on the train. Come and see how it looks when it's all done.

The whole process of putting together the set can be described as ups and downs, the beginning is bland, then boring, then amazing, and finally become boring again. Set of the essence of all concentrated in the passenger compartment, the other parts are the passenger compartment of the accompaniment, but not these accompaniment and can not reflect the wonderful passenger compartment, the lack of one, flowers also need green leaves with. Finally, the details, the passenger compartment seats are too compact, resulting in the hands of the man-child can not be adjusted at will, only to raise.
