The world-famous steam train featured in the Harry Potter film series is to travel through Scotland today.

The locomotive and carriages from the ‘Jacobite’ train are scheduled to travel south at the end of their summer season taking passengers along the scenic West Highland rail line between Fort William and Mallaig.

The train starred as the Hogwarts Express in several instalments of the famous fantasy film series, with sequences filmed at the Glenfinnan Viaduct at the head of Loch Shiel.
