Luxury Express is unlocked when the player reaches level 7.
Luxury Express was introduced during the Magic Tour and Christmas Update's first Timed Challenge, the Magic Tour Event (November 2016). For the duration of this Update, Luxury Express could be opened from level 7 onward to allow all players to take part in the update's timed challenges.Train Ticket special items were needed in addition to energy points to play Luxury Train. While the Magic Tour Timed Challenges were still active, Train Tickets were given as rewards for every successful investigation for every picture, and as rewards for banishing Anomalies, but not for playing puzzles. When the Luxury Express Timed event closed Train Tickets became available only in Japanese House and Bungalow. From the Diary: "Christy opened Richard's travel suitcase. It was fully equipped for a trip, but for some reason, Richard never used it. Along with other things, pieces of a magical photo fell from it! It has an old train on it, which continues to operate inside! Apparently, a new adventure begins." As of November 2016, Luxury Express is one of the 22 pictures in the game that does not reward any combining elements, but does reward collection items that require a large number of combining elements to combine.
- Cocktail hat
- Film camera
- Gravy boat
- Sleep mask
- Vinyl record
Morphs and Pieces modes have their own items that need to be found, separate from those listed above.
Resource Demands and Rewards for PlayingEdit
Luxury Express is a Collection Item only Picture. This means its list of potential rewards for each play only contains regular Collection Items, mode dependent Collection Items (depending on what mode the Picture is currently in), and Quest Items if a Quest is currently active for the Picture). The list of potential rewards for Luxury Express is made up of 7 new Collections added by the Magic Tour and Christmas Update:

When Luxury Express is first opened, and so is on Novice level, only the first 4 items from the In search of adventure collection will be on the list of potential rewards. As the level of the Picture is increased, more and more items will be unlocked as potential rewards.
The amount of energy required for each play increases as the Picture Level increases. The experience points and coins rewards for each win of the Picture will also increase to match the increase in resource demands, as will the pool of potential collection item rewards:
|Level||Resource Demands||Minimum Resource Rewards||Potential Game Item Rewards Pool|
|Energy Points||Special Items||Experience Points||Coins||Combining Elements||Collection Items|
|Novice||16||5||70||90||N/A||Archival records; Enciphered document; Deciphering book; Caves map; Seaplane ticket|

Note: Train Ticket Special Items are required, in addition to energy points for each play of Luxury Express for the duration of the Magic Tour and Christmas Update (November 2016 - Present). These may be removed as requirements to play the picture by the next update released for the game.
