The Hogwarts Express is a nice set but I would love to see a scale version from Lionel. It worked for the Polar Express.

It is quite possible I am wrong about this, Emile, but I think that loco is actually scale. I had two for a while and I remember checking and they measured right at scale. It is a British Hall class, and they were tiny compared to US locos with the same wheel count. I would have kept them if they had better (larger motors).

In addition to the locos mentioned above, Lionel also offered that basic loco as a Halloween train, which had "spooky sounds" instead of the usual. You can still find them, as I did, for sale at ridiculously low prices by retailers that have had them on the shelf for a decade or so and would just like to get rid of them.

They have small motors and I retired mine sometime back. ot sure where they are now.

That's very good to know! MTH makes scale versions of the correct (or close enough) passenger cars. A little paint and you've got a scale Hogwarts Express. I think I just took on a new project. Thanks Lee.
