  Hogwarts Express steams to London
Updated 21 February 2002, 19.51
The Harry Potter train is ready for filming
The Hogwarts Express is waiting for Harry Potter, after making the journey to London for filming on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

The bright red steam engine is hidden away in Carnforth when not needed by the film crew, but has now arrived at platform nine and three quarters.

The train left its home and went through Preston, Crewe, Nuneaton, Milton Keynes, Bletchley, Watford, Willesden Junction and Camden Road Junction before arriving at its temporary base of Hornsey depot.

The train only just survived to become a film star. It went out of service and was supposed to be sent for scrap.

Thankfully for those students who need to get to Hogwarts for the new term, the train was saved, painted red over the old green and pressed into service for a magical return.
