Are you looking to do something more ambitious that needs control and flexibility?  If so, Avanti's 'training train' in Crewe could be the solution with its fully functioning Pendolino coaches. They feature operationally-accurate 1st and standard class coaches as well as a shop and driver's cab.

As these carriages are not 'line-side', they don’t carry the same restrictions as those on the our network and therefore complex lighting, dressing and green screen setups are simple to achieve.  Contact us for details.

First class coach (18 seats)

Standard class coach and Shop (50 seats)

Subject to Band E fees.  Applications require the completion and submission of a specific Avanti West Coast method statement template, downloadable here.
