Pathetic, but such a sign of the times. Steam train service suspended because many of generation ‘GenZ’ can’t work out the door system on vintage carriages that I grew up with. It’s simple, just use your brain. Oh, hold on, I see the problem now

The operator of the Hogwarts Express and the UK’s rail regulator are in court battle over safety regulations due to its slam doors.

West Coast Railway (WCR) has been granted a judicial review in a bid to keep the traditional slam doors on their 1950s carriages.

The Office for Rail and Road (ORR) said train doors should have a modern central locking system in line with regulations that were put into action 20 years ago.

f they are forced to modernise their doors for safety reasons then it will cost £7million and the operator argued that it will wipe out their profit for a decade.

The WCR has been operating with an exemption to this regulation since 2005, but it expired in June.

As it owns 60 per cent of Britain’s heritage trains, the WCR fear that this rule could wipe them out and force them off the UK main line.

This includes another Harry Potter classic, the Jacobite steam train and the Flying Scotsman, which is a century old and the first train to reach 100mph speeds.
