The holiday train is a cute train but was designed for the now defunct 9V train motor and track, so motorising it would also take a bit of trial and error if you wanted to use the newer Power Functions train motor. The Hogwarts trains (there have been about three versions now) tend to suffer a bit from being more designed as toys for Hogwarts fans than train fans, IMHO. They are releasing a new Western train for the Lone Ranger theme if that is appealing at all. So, I settled for the Maersk diesel as it very much reminds me of my favorite real-life engine (GP-40 if I remember correctly? I can honestly tell you that I would not be here, back in Lego, If it wasn't for the Emerald Night train. I am still debating with myself about whether to buy EN or not, hoping there will be a super deal somewhere after Christmas. Thank you guys for letting me know what you think and I learnt a lot, especially about the engine. If you're not in a rush to get it before christmas you may want to consider the new Lone Ranger train that will be in the shops next year. For a winter village you'd probably change the gun for a coach but it would be a nice start, and cheaper than the EN on eBay.
But for now I have yet to see a powered MOC of it that is both functional and true to its look.
Do the mods described in RailBricks and the forum, and turn the engine into a push-along train. Emerald Night is a great build; looks good on its own without track, and will only go up in price.
If you really want realism and are happy to build - then there are many excellent MOC's out there which can be excellent engines - just look for the BR series often found in this sub-forum. If Lego does not bring out another steam engine, it will be highly desired for being the only adult collector's steam locomotive. If Lego does bring out another steam engine, it will continue to be sought after as new collectors, having bought the new set, search for the retired set.
As for the carriage, it's not difficult to build in a different livery, or you can wait and hope that the parts become available again (tan windows).
What is more evocative of a time gone by than the sight and smell of a powerful steam locomotive surging through the countryside, great plumes of steam pouring from its chimney, pistons pumping, whistles blowing! Now those wonderful halcyon steam powered days can be recreated in model form with the introduction onto the model tracks of a Hornby Live Steam locomotive. The control equipment used with Hornby Live Steam locomotives consists of a Regulator Console and a separate mains transformer. The Speed Regulator sends instruction signals down the track which control the locomotive's speed and direction. No smoke units or special effects - this is real Live Steam, brought to you for the first time commercially in '00' gauge by Hornby.
The spectacular A3 Class 'Flying Scotsman' this year joins the impressive stable of Live Steam locomotives from Hornby.


The individual Live Steam models are supplied complete with operating tools including filling syringes, steam oil and gloves.
This product is only suitable for adult collectors and not for children under 14 years old. The BR liveried A3 Class 'Papyrus' is the seventh Live Steam locomotive to be available, joining fellow A3 'Flying Scotsman' this year in the range.
Alternatively, if only one train is to be used, then additional link wires with  a pair of connecting clips (R8201) will be required. With this pack, the track layout shown on the Midimat Trackmat included with this set is completed. The layout may also be extended to the customer's own design if the Track Mat is not used. The most famous locomotive and train in the World features in this high range Hornby train set.
Additional Hornby Track and Accessory Packs will complete the main infrastructure of the TrakMat leaving any additional details for the operator to complete.
NOTE: This Train Set comes straight from Hornby in the UK so has UK plugs on the Transformer.

There are fixes available but it can take a bit of mucking around and some odd extra parts. From memory it doesn't have too many exotic pieces so despite the 2nd hand price it would be possible to buy the parts on bricklink fairly reasonably, and use instructions downloaded from the lego customer service website. Some of them (the first two) don't have proper train wheels so if you want to motorise those ones you also need to convert all the wheels to make them run well on train track.
It does have issues with operating smoothly and there are fixes for that but even just sitting still it is pretty awesome. Obviously that is the case (since it is retired) but even with a large amount on the market, at high prices, it continues to sell well.
I really doubt you'll regret it, and even if you do, they command respectable prices in used condition, allowing you sell it onwards for your money back. So, I bought purple ones for 2 cents each and bought a can of white spray paint formulated for plastic. The console houses the Steam Regulator that controls the electric immersion heater which is located in the locomotive's tender. Each locomotive requires its own individual track and control equipment for full functioning operation. Such a revolutionary model has never been seen in so much detail, but thanks to the latest technology from Hornby, these nostalgic memories of real steam engines can be replicated with your own model. Each locomotive is fitted with an NEM type coupling and is suitable for use with all Hornby rolling stock.


The Flying Scotsman is synonymous with the Golden Age of Steam and with those wonderful days of train travel in the 1930s when the two great railway rivals, the LNER and the LMS, vied for the lucrative passenger traffic between London and Scotland. The third one has standard train wheels on the carriages as well as the engine (unlike the large drivers on the Emerald Night engine) so it's not very realistic. Perhaps in the future when I get some more experience with building I can make my own Lego steam engine.
I have a modified tender with a 9V motor underneath that makes it run and powers the PF (newer) type lights on the front.
Of course you can also build EN in different colours using Bricklink - but the official model is faster. Included with this set is the Hornby TrakMat which accommodates with ease the large oval of track and two sidings. These are available on this site for $12.00 - or for the same price from Bunnings or K-Mart.
It has a number of rare pieces which will be hard to find cheaply so putting it together from parts is probably not worthwhile. There is also a motorised version, but it is ~$350 on bricklink now so probably better to buy the parts and work from downloaded instructions (though the 9V motor is likely to be expensive so a PF motor might be a cheaper option), and it too has small wheels on the engine in any case.
I took out the actual motor on one of the old 9V units to power the lights while it sits on the shelf the rest of the year. I wouldn't recommend it for reusing the bricks over and over as the paint made it a little tougher to put together. The larger of the sidings which sits inside the oval can comfortably handle the full train when operations have finished for the day.
Many people also feel it needs extra carriages, which make the tan windows even more sought after and therefore expensive.
Is the emerald night worth the money or maybe there will be another old fashioned train coming soon after Horizon Express?
I agree the price will continue to rise, but it will peak eventually if you are willing to wait and see how high that peak is. You could always use the instructions and change the color of the EN to something more available and thusly cheaper. I made a flat-bed train car for Christmas with Lego trees and brick built presents for the train and a small caboose. It looks great, was pretty easy to make, seems long enough to me and is light enough to run.
