Steaming Over The Viaduct

Another frame from Scotland in October 2012.
One of the big attractions in the Scottish Highlands is a day-long excursion aboard the Jacobite Steam Train – a vintage steam engine pulling visitor-laden passenger cars through some of the most dramatic scenery in Europe.  These days the highlight of the trip is passing over a bridge called the Glenfinnan Viaduct – which is a bridge that the Hogwards Express goes over in some of the Harry Potter movies.   The trip is sorta marketed now as a ride on the Hogwarts Express – which of course, it isn’t, but it’s fun to pretend.
And, of course, in the movie, the train if filmed from a helicopter flying over the viaduct as the train goes over.  It’s a lot hard to get a decent shot when you’re actually ON the train.  About the best you can do is put your arm out the window and fire away…
