Harry Potter Fans Devastated As Commuter Train Blocks View Of Hogwarts Express

Harry Potter Fans Devastated As Commuter Train Blocks View Of Hogwarts Express

Harry Potter fans in Scotland were left devastated when a commuter train blocked their view of the Hogwarts Express. You can enjoy a bit of Wednesday morning schadenfreude here:

Fans of the wizarding series packed out Drumry station to catch a glimpse of the Jacobite steam train as it rolled by.

Unfortunately for the Potterheads, the 18.26 to Edinburgh had different ideas, timing its passage through the station perfectly and completely obscuring the famous train from the expectant fans on the platform.

In the footage above, people can be heard sighing in disappointment while one man cackles at the misfortune - either 'cause he couldn't give two sh*ts about a train from Harry Potter, or 'cause it was all he could do to hold back the tears.

In another clip from the station, a woman can be heard yelling, 'Ya f*cking b*stard!', at the passing commuter train.

If you were there and you're still trying to console yourself after your Harry Potter train dreams were smashed to pieces by the 18.26 to Edinburgh, then perhaps you should treat yourself to a stay at 'The Dorm'.

Harry Potter Fans Can Stay In A Cottage Inspired By Gryffindor Dorm Room

The Dorm has six single beds - which is handy given the current rule of six - so you and your nerdy Gryffindor homies can get away for a long weekend of pretending you're wizard children.

When you're not in your four poster beds, you'll be to relax together in the open plan lounge area, which boasts a large stone fireplace. It's the perfect spot for kicking back and practicing your spells or necking a few butterbeers.

​Harry Potter Fans Can Now Take Hogwarts-Themed Classes While In Lockdown

published at8 months ago

There's also a little kitchen if you fancy cooking up a storm - after all, the students at Hogwarts don't pig out on Deliveroo every night do they?

The bathroom also features numerous nods to the wizarding world, namely a 'specially-commissioned backlit stained glass window depicting a blonde mermaid that became famous in the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire film', and a number of ornate Gothic style features which offer 'a further nod to the opulence of the prefects' bathroom'.

Explaining why she decided to create The Dorm, business entrepreneur and designer Carol Cavendish said: "We stayed positive during the darkness of lockdown and used the time to crack on with completing the next phase of our vision for creating a fantasy story-book themed holiday venue that suits families and those looking to stage a memorable get-together whether it's a wedding, birthday party or other function.

"Today when there's so much fear around the pandemic, people are looking for ways they can step back from reality for a short time and be comforted in a world of make-believe which is just what The Dorm aims to do along with our other accommodation."

A stay at The Dorm is priced at £50 per person per night, based on a six-person booking. You can find out more and book the accommodation here.
