Harry Potter fans waited for hours on Monday at a train station in Scotland to see and photograph the iconic Hogwarts Express steam train as it passed through. Just as it was rumbling by, however, a commuter train decided to block the view. The “devastating” (yet hilarious) photobomb was captured in this 1-minute video.

Unfortunately, only one of the two platforms ended up getting a view of the train — a ScotRail train (the 18.26 to Edinburgh) passed through at exactly the same time from the opposite direction, completely ruining the view for half the attendees. By the time the ScotRail was gone, so too was the Hogwarts Express.
