News article: Fans Who Waited Hours To See ‘Hogwarts Express’ Have View Ruined By Perfectly Timed Train

Harry Potter fans who waited hours to see the historic ‘Jacobite’ train which served as the ‘Hogwarts Express’ had their view ruined by a perfectly timed commuter train.

I am not a person who takes photos of trains and shares them on the internet but I can see how many railfans like to do this and also take snaps of the heritage units which run around the country and overseas of course.

I can see then how disappointing many that day would have been experiencing the block of vision for the train running in the area and especially the children who were looking forward to seeing the train.

How can anyone wanting to take photos avoid this when the other platform was probably very full?  Could the rail operator have re-timed some trains to ensure this did not happen or would that be hard to do?

Oh dear, how sad, too bad, never mind.
If it wasn't Scotland I would say that Murphy had something to do with it.

Use a drone, stand on an overbridge or other place where the view can't be obstructed.

The rail operator could choose to not let heritage trains operate on their networks.

That would solve the problem pretty quickly.

I remember reading in Steam Railway mag a letter from some anorak whinging about the same thing happening to him in the 1980's...

Pretty certain #5972 isn't allowed to operate on the public network?
