Location filming recently took place in Scotland involving the Hogwarts Express train for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. A freelance photographer has now posted photos on his public flickr, here or here in our image galleries of the filming where a camera was attached to a helicopter to get the overhead shots; others show the fabled train at  Rannoch Station near Loch Rannoch, Scotland. Please note: no cast members were present at this filming.

Thanks to Aaron Sneddon

i don’t think its for the epilogue, but perhaps for some shots in the first movie…like Neville and Luna noticing Harry, Ron and Hermione are not on the train with them.

To film the epilogue they have to cast some kids and Emma has to be there too. She’s at Brown now, so they either already filmed ir or they are going to on her break.

Cool shots, I wonder if that guna be part of the EPilogue, or they might show ginny, luna, and neville going to school

Okay, there was no cast members present, but I still don’t want to see anything that is connected with DH. :D…. Yet.

I am intrigued to see that they are filming these scenes in this location. Either this is from the epilogue or Harry’s conversation with Dumbledore or some scene that has been created specially for the movie.

Yeah, they are going to shoot Luna, Neville and Ginny on the train, so maybe this is it? I honestly don’t think we need that in the movie. Just as long as they don’t cut out any other stuff..

ok i don’t get why they are going to shoot Luna ,Neville and Ginny not seeing Harry ,Ron and Hermione on the train because Ginny and Luna were there when the death eaters came they must have seen them leave the wedding
……whatever it’s still cool!

Two options:
1) it’s the last scene, where we see Harry & co. when they’re adults
2) at grimmauld place, the trio say how it feels that while they’re there, the train is leaving, and we see the train leaving kings cross…

If this is happening at the moment, it can’t be to do with the main cast as they are all on a break until October. Maybe they still want to show the Hogwart’s express taking the children who are still able to attend, such as Ginny, Neville and Luna and these are the usual filling in shots for the train travelling along etc.

I remember they said something about this scene. Its after Harry, Ron, and Hermione talk about its weird they not in the train and they show kids going in the train and Luna, Neville, and Ginny wondering where the trio is at. Then they are getting off the train at Hogsmade and we could see how different the atmosphere is, like its all depressed and you can see the kids looking scared. They also said there were death eater picking kids from groups.
