The meaning of platform 9 and 3/4

by Greg Krehbiel on 8 December 2006

Somebody recently told me a really cool hidden meaning to “platform 9 and 3/4″ in the Harry Potter books. It had something to do with a legend about something being buried under one of the tracks, or something along those lines.

Does anybody know the story?

    Maybe the similarity to the myth of Queen Boudica is coincidental.
