December 12 – Harry Potter – Hogwarts Express

This was the build that I knew I wanted to do right away for this feature. I have always enjoyed creating micro scale trains, specifically steam engines, and there were some techniques for them that I have not used in a while I wanted to revisit. Like many micro builds I have created, this one relies on the “Travis Brick” to allow for tiles going in every direction in a small space, as well as leaving the perfect connection point for the Pneumatic T-Bars which are used as the axles.
