Key pieces of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion have arrived at Universal Orlando. The Hogwarts Express, which will take guests between the current Hogsmeade area in Islands of Adventure and the new Diagon Alley expansion in Universal Studios, have been spotted in a backstage area.
The above picture shows what looks to be two separate trains, each containing three passenger cars and one tender car or caboose. The train engines have yet to be seen.
The Hogwarts Express is expected to include projections inside the cars to give guests the feeling of traveling through the countryside on the way to Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley, with different experiences each route.
Stay tuned for more updates.
