Wallpaper Tuesday

Jacobite train

Photographer Vytenis Malisauskas labeled this photo “Glenfinnan Viaduct,” but it could also have been called “The Jacobite.” This is the Jacobite train, better known to moviegoers as the Hogwarts Express. The real-life route it travels from Fort William to Maillaig, Scotland isn’t quite as spectacular as the route it travels in the Harry Potter films, but it’s close. The Glenfinnan Viaduct, with its 21 arches, is so beautiful that it was imported wholesale into the Harry Potter films.

    Riding The Jacobite went on my bucket list the second I found out it wasn’t CGI in the HP movies 🙂
