In this video I’ll show you the changes I made to the fabulous LEGO Hogwarts Express train using a second set and some parts from Bricklink.
This custom LEGO Train MOC has been extended by 2 studs and the centre whistle moved back 2 studs. This was to better match the real Hogwarts Express train – although I might change it further but then the tender would need an extension too.
For the carriages, I’m using a 24 stud long train carriage base (the same size as city trains like the LEGO City Passenger Train 60197). I decided they were a good size as my layout is quite short and this way they all match (and saves arguments with corners!).
Both carriages have working doors, a few extra details and one is fitted out as a full dining car now. Don’t forget to say hi to Dr McBrick and GJBricks in the dining car!

Hi, any chance you could post the parts list for your carriages please?
Hey Robert, sorry to say I didn’t document it. Maybe one day I will do a V2 with instructions.
Hey GJBricks!!! I have recently discovered your Youtube and Website as I’m slowly getting into the LEGO train world…. would love to know if you have decided to do a V2 on this one and have a parts list. I just ordered the bricks for motorising my HG Express but would love to extend my carriages and yours are great! Any tips??
