Filming and location fees

All income generated through the film office is reinvested into the running of the railway.  Therefore all filming, photography and recording is subject to fees, charges and contracts.  Special dispensations apply only to breaking news crews and rail enthusiasts.

Charges are grouped in bands and are based on applications being submitted at least seven days prior to the shoot.  The below provides a guideline only and final fees may be higher or lower than those listed depending on the activity or impact of your shoot at location, its users, and its daily operation.  Please note, VAT is charged on top of all our fees and extra staff fees may apply depending on the requirement of your project.

Small-scale Filming Agreement (SSFA) / Short notice

Productions with fast turnarounds, or those which total five persons or less are required to apply via our Small-scale Filming Agreement (SSFA) form.  Whilst these applications ask for a reduction in equipment, they can be processed quickly, saving you all important time and effort.
