Ministry of Magic and the Wizard's Council Transportation

Evangeline Orpington becomes Minister for Magic

Orpington is considered to be one of the most accomplished Ministers for Magic. She instituted the creation of Platform 9 and 3/4 to be the London terminus of the Hogwarts Express. Orpington served until 1855.

Timeline Notes

King's Cross was opened in 1852, which suggests that Orpington had the magical connection constructed at the same time as the station was under construction.
