Notice to All Passengers Who Patronize the Hogwarts Express

Rarely are traveler's belongings mislaid during transit. However in the event that such loss occurs and the SWS Team (Search With Sorcery) fails to locate your possessions, you should describe the missing piece or pieces of property on the "Missing Luggage Form R11" which can be obtained from one of our conductors or train operators.
If there is no news after a few days have passed, please submit a claim to Atypical Transport. Be aware that according to Rules and Regulations of Railroad Shipment page 589 subparagraph 16D that all rail common carriers are legally obligated to reimburse up to one hundred and thirty silver sickles for packages and luggage lost. Surplus Property and Casualty insurance may be purchased for 39 bronze knuts for each sixty gold galleons covered. A ceiling of 3,000 gold galleons is normal for most policies and many companies refuse to insure expensive, perishable, mystical, or frail objects.
