A Flying Scotsman train at King's Cross Station

The Flying Scotsman is a daily British express passenger train service that has been running between London and Edinburgh—the capitals of England and Scotland respectively—since 1862. It is currently operated by Virgin Trains East Coast. It is only used by Muggles.

There was a Flying Scotsman train at Platform 10 on the day Harry Potter boarded the Hogwarts Express for the first time, 1 September, 1991.
