Take an imaginary train ride to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for some magical adventures. Royal Selangor’s pewter Hogwarts Express at Platform 9¾ is waiting to whisk Harry Potter fans to the fictional boarding school where he and best buddies Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley learn about charms, spells and many things else.
The meticulously crafted replica of the iconic steam locomotive captures the charm of the original red model, with elegant carriages, polished handles and authentic platform signage. Harry’s luggage trolley appears through a brick wall made of composite resin, as are the awning, platform and base of this keepsake.
For those unfamiliar with J K Rowling’s fantasy series, Platform 9¾ is hidden between 9 and 10 at King’s Cross station in London and passengers have to walk directly into the solid barrier that divides them. It is the only place to catch the express train to Hogwarts. Pre-orders for Royal Selangor’s replica are available from Nov 24 at authorised dealers or royalselangor.com.
