We took the train from King’s Cross station from London to York. Our train left from platform 3, but we had to walk past Platforms 10 through 4, and just between 9 and 10, was a huge crowd of people. Looking to see what the fuss was about, we found the sign, on the bare wall, for 9 3/4. For a small fee, you could take your photo with a wand and luggage trolley, a privilege we skipped.
Boy is not a fan of the Harry Potter books,but has read the first one, and he is looking forward to putting the sighting on a postcard to friends back home.
