I don't live in the UK but I think it would be nice to have some stuff there too. I mean, England is there... These characters are from England. I kind of figured it like that.Avatar Imagegreatpetie83 says: If their last stop is Strassbourg they are going up sort of, maybe the train will then go to the Netherlands via Germany. There are still no more details about the visit of props to Haarlem and they said it would be the end of June.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: this is cool! Avatar Imageboona says: I wonder if the train will go elsewhere in europe? i might arrange to be there but june is too early for me.Avatar Imagegoodenough says: Way to go! Brig cool HP events to Europe (and Norway next).. It sound so cool :)Avatar Imagehopkinsdancr22 says: dang! I'm planning on going to france this year but I won't be there in June =(Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: you're so lucky =DAvatar Imagekbicprez says: Any reason to go to France sounds good to me.Avatar Imagenoe_lover_42 says: how cool Slytherin FTC!

Lucky French fans! :]Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: It is just wonderful that the French will be able to see the props on a train. Although I am able to visit the exhibit in Chicago, I still find the idea of viewing them on "The Hogwarts Express" quite a wonderful thing.Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: Wow i wish i had the money to go to everything Avatar Imagevicky granger says: YAY ! ON MY BIRTHDAY ITS GONNA BE HERE IN PARIS ! WOOHOO ! Avatar ImageAbiDumbledore says: They are lucky! Sounds amazing!Avatar Imagemaera-kyrie says: Ack lucky French peeps. lolAvatar Imagefrench soup says: yaaaaay ; DDD i'm definitely going : D last time with order of the phoenix, it was kinda cool : DAvatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: Darn, I want to see the props too! But it's pretty clear that they're not gonna come anywhere near me, thanks to the Baltic Sea. :( I'm quite surprised, though, that the UK isn't getting any of it.. I mean, the Jo's British, Harry's British, the whole goddamn wizarding world is British. What's up with that? Why isn't the UK getting the Harry Potter Exhibition, or even a few train compartments filled with props? Or have I missed something? (Can you tell I'm desperate for an excuse to fly over to London, LOL)Avatar ImageDolemite says: Lucky to be french.Avatar Imagevicky granger says: I have never been more happy to be French ! (Although living in Paris HAS prevented me from doing amazing things like seeing WRock shows, listening to live PCs -I did it once, from 1 to 3 AM, I was kinda tired the next day- and going to LeakyCon, so...)Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: Calling Warner Bros. Harry Potter had also thousand of fans here in the Philippines! Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Cool! At least it's not just the US that gets to see stuff like this.Avatar ImageKC Nox says: That sound really neat...and I bet it will look interesting to see people filing through 3 train cars!Avatar Imageespalda neon says: sweet! but im possibly going to be in switzerland by then. i'll try to go.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: well, this exhibit isn't any closer to me..LOL..but congrats to the people that live in or near france that will get to go to it! :)Avatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: Finally something I can actually go to!
