We know that our poor Remus wasn't a rich guy, so maybe he just didn't have money to go to Hogwarts in the other way. Except that, he could been tired. He had to contact Dumbledore earlier, I suppose. I don't think any person can come in the Hogwarts Express.

And then, Dumbledore let him travel by train because he knew that the Dementors can appear. That's my opinion

I think it could have been a great number of reasons. defending the train, etc. but now that I thinkk about it, having him on the train is a great plot device and a way for harry to meet him outside of hogwarts. If you think about it, harry usually is introduced to the DADA teacher before he gets to hogwarts, and has some sort of relationship established.

I agree that Dumbledore probably sent him on the train to protect against the Dementors, especially since DD doens't trust them.

Wasn't Remus on the train because he was called in at the last moment to be the DADA teacher? Therefore he had no other means of transport to get him to Hogwarts.

i agree, i expected he was at home, being ill .

maybe he should have taken the knight bus,bus he is a poor man(not being able to get a job and such) so he probably cant afford it. and he was probably recovering from a transformation,so he didnt have the energy to apparate to hogsmeade.

I think Dumbledore stationed him on the train just in case. Dumbledore was never fond of dementors coming to Hogwarts in the first place. His first priority is the safety of his students.

Maybe Lupin was there to watch over Harry and make sure he is safe since Lupin is a part of the Advance Guard. Even though he might not have been on the guard back then though, but you never know!

Perhaps a better question to ask is, how do all the other professors get to Hogwarts? Maybe Lupin was notified at very late notice that his application had been approved? I mean it sounds as though Dumbledore had to go through a lot of trouble with both school bi-laws as well as the ministry of magic to get Lupin approved for the position. We know wizards can't apparate, and if Sirius lives in London, maybe Lupin did to, so it just made sense for him to hop a ride on the express.

Remus was a poor wizard. He had no job before he became the DADA professor. Since the Dementors were going to be guarding Hogwarts perhap no one could fly in. His being on the train could as be explained that a full moon had just passed and he was still weak from his transfiguration into a werewolf. Hermoine even comments in the book that he doesn't look well. As far as other professors are concern I would think it was clear....they lived in the castle. Think about how Trelawny reacts when Umbridge fires her and tries to made her leave the castle. At Eton, a British boarding school, the Masters and Dames live there even during breaks. They might travel but their main residence is the school or the town surrounding the school.

I always figured Dumbledore, Hagrid, Filch, and the 'year-round staff' lived there. I had thought thought that many of the teachers would live in neabry hogsmeade. Perhaps most live in the castle though. In the movies we see McGonegal (spelling, yeah I know) in a night gown, so maybe the rest of the staff do live at Hogwarts.
Then it makes sense that Lupin was simply going there because he 1) couldn't apparate, 2) there likely isn't any portkey, 3) too weak to fly, 4) late notice. Good response!

I agree and I bet he offered to take it, so that if sirius did try to get on, like he prolly thought he would, he could help him escape from the dementors and the ministry.

It's also possible that Dumbledore encourage the idea of him taking the train both so he could rest, and keep a close eye on Harry. Dumbledore might not have been anticipating Dementors, but Black was supposed to be a madman. They all figured he killed 13 muggles and a wizard in broad daylight, what's to stop him from breaking onto a trian full of school age kids? Lupin probably lept at the chance to protect his best friend's son.

Bravo. I would have to agree with you. This seems to be a good theory as to why he was on the train.

well that could result in many reasons:

1) he missed the teachers train
2) all new professors go onto the train he is just the first one we have seen
3) he may want to *shrug*
4) he may be returning to Hogwarts after leaving for certain reason etc.

all these are possibilities

I think that Siriusly_in_Love is definetly right but i also think that maybe dumbledore wanted remus on the train for another reason... its pretty obvious when reading the books that dumbledore doesnt like the dementors.. he Definetly doesnt trust them (especially after the breakout).. and since he is friends with remus he thought he could help keep an eye out for ALL students maybe not just harry

i think he was on the train because they all thought sirius was trying to kill harry so doumbledore asked lupin to go on the train and make sure that harry was safe.
or lupin decided of his own free will to take the train to protect harry in case sirius tried to get harry then.

make sense?

Question

[FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=5][COLOR=Purple]
Maybe he was on the train because he knew the dementors would come after Harry, and he wanted to be there for him when it happened.

Or you know, it could have been some crazy cooincedence that he was just there and knew how to save Harry. :crazy:
