To join the train arrive at old Gympie Station by 2.30pm where the 'Talking Hat' will give details of which platform to go to, then jump through the wall to find the steam train and take allocated seats on the Wizard's Express.

At 3pm the Wizard's Express will depart Gympie to travel down the Mary Valley to Amamoor where the steam locomotive will be turned on the turntable before Professor Grumblebum requests the return journey to the Great Hall at Eltozer Castle Gympie to see an exciting

magic show by Professor Bumbledorf. Then to a wizardly feast outside the Great Hall.

Travellers - young and old - will be expected to come dressed as a Harry Potter favourite character and travel on the train with dragons, witches, wizards, magic broomsticks, Professor Grumblebum and Hagrid and maybe even a few friendly rats !
