The Pendolino is the workhorse of the West-coast mainline.  Offering the definitive intercity experience, the 'Pendo' tilting-train can race up to 125mph and is able to provide long non-stop stretches to provide the most amount of uninterrupted filming time.  Running between its home base at London Euston, the train terminates at destinations as diverse as Birmingham New Street, Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow CentralLiverpool Lime Street and Manchester Piccadilly.

For on-train filming, we offer film crews point-point journeys on all Virgin services in order so you can make the most out of your time aboard and both single-journey and round-trips are available on all Virgin routes.  To give you an idea, this starts as little as 1h22min from London to Birmingham and up-to a whopping 5h43min from London to Edinburgh.

Make sure to look at our Super Voyager train as it runs to the many of the same as well as some different destinations.  For ultimate control take a look at our static coaches which are available to suit all demands.

Subject to a minimum rental period.  Due to lead-in time and safety requirements, only productions categorised as Bands B and C are recommended to apply.
