About Us

Charter trains & group rail travel since 1998. Real experience for the benefit of our clients

Train Chartering, now in its 13th year, has provided private train charters and carriage hires to an extraordinary range of clients. Train Chartering operates mainly in the UK, Europe and North America - though we can arrange travel almost anywhere in the world.

We set up in 1998, focused on private charter trains, when the term 'train chartering' was not in use, even in the rail industry; it is now part of our registered trade mark.

Our extensive experience and wide contact base allows us to select the best trains available along with a suite of onboard services, handling every detail from complex scheduling to food, entertainment and train branding.

Groups of 10 to 700+

A few years later, we began offering private carriages and escorted group travel. This allows us to present a rail travel solution for any reasonable budget, from groups of 10 to over 700 per train; we can move over 3,500 passengers in one day.

Luxury & VIP Train Travel

We handle unique, individual and private luxury train journeys for clients.

From individual seats to entire rail cars, carriages and trains, we're able to help you select and experience the world's greatest train journeys.

Passenger Transport Charter by air, land and water

We operate proposed transport and offer ground handling & onboard services.

  • Why is "How to get there" often the last item on the planning agenda?
  • And "Problems with transport" a key issue after the event?
  • We provide full management for all forms of passenger transport


Train Chartering provides catering and other onboard services as well as facilitating the branding and theming of the train or carriage. This creates a memorable and unique event for every charter.


We can brand individual carriages to entire trains, such as the Soundwave Express, that travelled throughout Europe, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Germany and France, before ending the journey in Istanbul.

However, much branding is on a smaller scale, such as the provision of window signs or embroidered headrest covers.

Professionalism & Experience

The extent and professionalism of the company's project and guest management services is unique in the rail industry and rare in the passenger charter sector; caring for every aspect of your event, from first contact through to ground handling in stations and transfers to the post-trip event.
