public_access_description
Hogwart's Express is from J. K. Rowling's book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It is a passenger train that runs from platform nine and three quarters at Kings Cross Station to Hogsmeade station near Hogwarts. The train is pulled by a scarlet steam locomotive. There is no dining service but a witch pushes a tea cart selling various sweets and iced pumpkin juice. Though the train looks like any other muggle (non magic people) train this one is different as it does not run on steam or on train tracks, but on magic.
