[Yellow.LXF7586] has designed the train wheels for the carriages. They have given me full permission to use their design.
[TheBrickCloud] has provided me with the rendered images for the project, as I have been unable to render them with my own personal resources. They have given me permission to use these images, and they claim full ownership of these images.

Many thanks go out to them for assisting me in this project.

"Now this is what I call deluxe! Just look at this room!"
"Yes, I can certainly see why some call the Molentary Express a cruise ship on rails."

"In this mind bending mystery, puzzles hide in every corner. As rumours of a cursed artefact circulate, the professor's mentor is found ill in mysterious circumstances. The only apparent clue is a ticket for the Molentary Express."

I was introduced to the Professor Layton series when I was a child; someone had kindly let me borrow their game. Each game has always captivated me, from the picturesque locations, to the flawless animation, and their incredible stories.

This project started a few years ago mid 2021. I decided to change the scale to 10 studs wide instead of standard 6 wide, because I wanted room for the sitting spaces as well as the hallways on each carriage. This also gave me more room for detailing on the engine itself, which was arguably the hardest part of the train to design.

This has been my first attempt at making a big, detailed train and overall, I'm very happy with how this project turned out. I had a lot of fun designing the carriages!
