Stranded family rescued by the Hogwarts Express

Stranded family rescued by the Hogwarts Express

A family from Scotland got the surprise of their lives when the 'Hogwarts Express' train came to their rescue after being stranded in Scottish Highlands.

The family called for help after their canoe was washed away in a storm. 

According to reports, the father, Jon Cluett, said that he called the police and asked if there was any way for he and his family to be rescued. 

"The policeman said, 'We've arranged for the next train passing to stop for you, and you're not going to believe this but it's the Hogwarts Express steam train'," Cluett said.

The family was pleasantly surprised when the Jacobite steam train, the train used in the popular Harry Potter movies, came to their rescue. 

"I’m slightly sad because I’d lost my boat – but the kids, when they saw the steam train coming, all sadness left their little faces and was replaced by excitement and fun – just the real joy of having an adventure and having the train stop right next to them," Cluett said.
