What do magical train spotters do once they've seen the Hogwarts Express?

Oh, try and catch a glimpse of the Galaxy Express...

Well, they'd have a better chance spotting that than Thomas The Tank Engine...

I've heard that really dedicated trainspotters do carriage spotting. Or they might use Apparation and clandestinely acquired guide books to spot Muggle trains, which is a really guilty pleasure because of the Statute of Secrecy, so "being a trainspotter" becomes the HP world equivalent of parkour or ziplining, and its elite practitioners are spoken about in similar terms.

In other random HP thoughts, I spotted a "Special Skull Fountain Firework" in the firework cabinet at the local Tesco Express, leading me to mutter, "And you, too, can create an authentic Death Eater Dark Mark Experience in the privacy of your own back yard."

How about other magical vehicles like the flying ship?

Or maybe there is a wizarding equivalent of the Orient Express? Maybe from Paris to Shangri La?

Or they take a Morning Town ride.

Or one of the options here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost_train_(folklore)

I take it that's "(magical train) spotters" rather than "magical (train spotters)". :)
