uses 5,129 pieces, including a substantial section of platform to recreate scenes from the films. Assuming that 2,000 or fewer bricks are used for the platform build, that leaves around 3,000 for the huge Hogwarts Express and the track it sits on. That’s a similar build that has been proposed for the Orient Express by LEt.sGO, using 2,995 pieces.
