Theme World: Hogwarts Express Arrives
A quick, but exciting update from Universal. The Hogwarts Express has arrived.
No -- Not the prop near the Butterbeer stand
The first cars for the train ride linking the original Wizarding World to the new Diagon Alley have arrived backstage at Universal.
You can see the track it will ride atop right above the car in the second photo.
As we've told you before -- the Hogwarts Express will feature ultra-high-resolution screens to let you see the countryside instead of ugly backstage buildings.
Diagon Alley is due to open by next Summer. But, who knows, maybe it is ahead of schedule. I'm sure many muggles would be exited to ride the Express during the Potter Party in late January. But that could be a trick even Dumbledore might now be able to pull off.
More on Potter as it comes in. And more Theme World next week
