Platform Nine and Three-Quarters—just the name conjures up an alternate world of mystery and magic, hidden doors, spells and secret passages. Platform 9 ¾ at King's Cross Station in London is where the young witches and wizards in the Harry Potter series of books and movies board the Hogwarts Express train every September 1 at eleven o'clock to travel to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as seen in the movie "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone." But to get to Platform 9 ¾ , the students (and their luggage carts) had to first dash through a solid barrier between platforms 9 and 10, without attracting the attention of any nearby Muggles.
The enchanting wooden model Platform 9 ¾ by Ugears is a new addition to the Ugears Harry Potter™ collection (also featuring DIY wooden mechanical models of the Hogwarts™ Express, Flying Ford Anglia™, Knight Bus™, Hagrid's Flying Motorbike™ and Advent Calendar). This attractive train platform model is a static display that replicates the Victorian era look of King's Cross station with its beautiful brickwork and ceiling arch. The model includes a two-sided platform with upward curving arches, platform sign, a section of track, and two figurines of Harry and Ron with luggage trolley and suitcases loaded with their school things. Detailed decorative cardboard walls complete the realistic design look of the historic station.
