The Jacobite steam train that unites the mountainous Fort William and the fishing port Mallaig is actually the Hogwarts Express that took Harry, Ron, and Hermione to the famous school of magic.

The gorgeous Glenfinnan Viaduct screened in the first chapters of the movie showcases the incredible scenery best viewed from the left side of the train.

The season runs from mid-April to late October. Train schedule differs from Morning Service and Afternoon Service, so check local websites for more detailed information.
