Harry Potter fans wait for hours to see Hogwarts Express but train blocks view

Harry Potter fans were left fuming when a commuter train passed in front of them at the exact same time the "Hogwarts Express" that they had been waiting for hours to see appeared.

Video posted on social media shows school kids and young children yelling in high spirits at the Drumry train station, Dunbartonshire, when the locomotive comes into the station.

They have their mobile phones ready as the steam train enters into view.

But seconds later, a multi-carriage ScotRail commuter train goes past on the opposite track and blocks the entire view of the iconic black and red train.

Some of the fans hoping to get a closer look of the Hogwarts Express on Monday (September 28) can be heard screaming in anger when they miss out on the picture-perfect moment.

Sadly, the steam train doesn't stop at the station and disappointed fans can only see it whizzing past.

The clip has gone viral after it was posted on Twitter, where viewers found the funny side of the situation.

One joked: "Not everyone knows how to find platform 9 3/4."

Another said: "Hahah, standard, wait all day for a Scotrail and it turns up at the worst time."

"Oh this is so sad," a third added. "Some really disappointed children."

According to the Daily Record, the single-carriage train travelled from its winter base in Carnforth in Lancashire on Monday.

Locals complained of the overcrowded situation as the Potterheads crammed both sides of the platforms with no social distancing.

Many others claimed people were not following the government's advice and said the adults and children were seen not wearing face masks or any face coverings.
