For this set, LEGO has chosen rails with a slightly more refined design. However, LEGO Ideas 21344 The Orient Express Train should seamlessly align with standard rails in terms of track width. The designer achieved this by using carriages that are eight studs wide, with the train’s wheels adjusted inward to ensure compatibility with existing rails. It’s worth noting that, much like the 2020 release of the LEGO Icons 10277 Crocodile Locomotive, a motor inclusion seems unlikely.
