The Orient Express, a Legendary Train

251 comments
👋 "Welcome aboard (again)! I hope you have your ticket for a trip on the legendary Orient Express. "

🚂 I am delighted to present you again this set of the Orient Express, reproduced as faithfully as possible from the 241 K 8 locomotive and carriages from the golden age of the International Night Wagon Company in the 1930s.

👌 This new version has one less car and the number of parts has been optimized to stay under the 3000 pieces limit. 

🕵️ This train took thousands of passengers across Europe to Istanbul from 1919 to 2009. It has been the scene of great adventures such as those of detective Hercule Poirot. 

🚃 I have always been a big fan of trains and Lego: associating these two passions was an obvious choice. If some references exist in the LEGO catalog, I wanted to add my own and create like the Crocodile LEGO CREATOR locomotive, I wanted to find the charm of yesteryear of steam locomotives. What could be more mythical than the Orient Express?

🔎 I designed it as I would like to have it for myself: a piece that you want to display and always rediscover thanks to the countless small details. 

🍽️ In addition to the locomotive and the coal car, I have included the restaurant car with its removable roof, to discover the interior!

❤️ I hope this train will appeal to LEGO fans and train collectors. I especially hope you will like it. If you do, please support the project by voting and sharing it!

🙏 Thanks for your attention.

👋 "And see you soon on board one of our Orient Express trains!"
