I'm hoping it's clear enough that they're inside the Hogwarts Express in panels 1 to 3. I thought I'd shot people inside the train before, but going back through the archives reveals I'd only ever done people looking out the windows, not having a conversation inside the train.

(The Cliffhangers cast were inside a train at one point, but I built a custom compartment for them.)

2016-07-25 Rerun commentary: To shoot them inside the train, I actually took one entire side wall of the train off, so I could poke the camera into position and not get blocked by it. This messed up the structural integrity quite substantially, and I ended up modifying the other side wall (seen behind the characters) a bit too. This is why there's a gap under the black block, and also under the windows.
