Heritage railway on quest to find muggle to Slytherin-to new role

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) has set out on a magical quest to find a wizarding ambassador and muggle relations expert.

Open to both magical and non-magical applications, the voluntary position might sound a little riddikulus but the heritage railway, which features in the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is deadly Sirius.

Responsibilities include leading groups of muggles and wizards on tours around Goathland station –  which became Hogsmeade station in the film franchise’s first outing – working with the education officer to create an engaging wizarding itinerary, and participating in any media or publicity activities as required by NYMR.
