A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven O'clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it, He had done it.
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J. K. Rowling
Description: I chose the colours for obvious reasons, the steam engine being scarlet red, and - I imagine (or am influenced by the movies) - has some black parts as well. I chose no add-ins except fuzzy mohair which I spun in as kinds of clouds, representing the steam.
