Breaking news from The Train Chartering Company provides insight into some of its range of rail applications.

In one week, Train Chartering delivered quality train events for:

  • A large group;
  • The hosted VIP party;
  • A TV advert shoot;
  • The hire of a private train.

Large group: A significant player in the finance sector needed comfortable and reliable transport for 300 employees for its annual out-of-office convention at a business hotel. Train Chartering identified and delivered the optimum travel solution, which included some management of coach transfers. On-time managed journeys both ways added tangible value to the smooth-running of their event.

Hosted VIP party: A venue in rural England has developed a strategy for seeking investment to develop its niche offering. Integral to its planning is the repeat use of Train Chartering’s quality project management and VIP guidance. This includes welcoming reception facilities prior to departure, the securing of private First Class carriages on intercity train services and the provision of tailored on-board catering during the escorted journey. In this focus week, Train Chartering once again operated a successful journey with measurable impact on increased funding for our long-standing client.

TV advert shoot: Finding train- or rail-based film locations on the mainline railway is a challenge for many location managers and media agencies. Train Chartering has many years’ experience in this area for a range of applications, from feature movies and TV dramas to ads and photoshoots. Most recently, the client required a modern commuter train at a platform of a normal station for an 8-hour TV ad shoot. This could have been a challenging brief on the busy British rail network without Train Chartering’s expertise, which delivered everything the director required.

Hire of a private train: Although group travel on scheduled train services often fulfils customer requirements, there are occasions when a client requires the profile and privacy of a special train charter; profile for itself with its guests (private trains always impress) and a degree of privacy in restricting public access. Our passengers on their hired train had a seamless and enjoyable journey, which was appreciated by the corporate organiser.

Simon Pielow of Train Chartering says, “We chose to highlight this period for the diversity of solutions we delivered, but there are not enough days in the week to illustrate all the applications of quality rail travel.”
