Fees and category bands
All income generated through the film office is reinvested into the running of the railway and therefore all filming, photography and recording permissions are subject to contracts, fees and charges (all of which are subject to VAT). Dispensations apply only to breaking news crews and rail enthusiasts.
Fees are categorised by band and are based on completed applications being received within the stated timescales. The below provides a guideline only, as final fees can be higher depending on activity and impact to the location’s users and operation. Crews exceeding 10 persons usually require staff chaperoning which is subject to additional charges.
Certain non-station locations are subject to a minimum rental period (e.g. 12-hours), regardless of a shoot's duration in order for it to be viable for use. Locations which carry this caveat are noted within the relevant location library pages.
