It would also heighten the divide between wizarding born and muggle born children if only the muggle born had to arrive by train.

Pottermore says it used to be the responsibility of the parents, who used broomsticks and apparation, which caused many muggle sightings. Afterwards, they used portkeys, but many students either missed the time-slot or became "portkey-sick." Floo powder was suggested but the headmasters believed it would compromise the security of the school. Then the ministry of magic made the hogwarts express because they were so intrigued by the muggle invention.
