Train Chartering has supplied a car manufacturer with an exclusive First Class Pullman charter train from London. Their international dealer network and invited customers travelled to and from their chosen venue, with onboard dining by a renowned chef.
The private train has First Class air-conditioned intercity carriages. The coaches, with panoramic windows, sound-proofing, good suspension, armchair seats and full-size tables created a comfortable environment for Pullman dining and good conversation.
The car manufacturer required a first class travel and dining experience for their international dealers and most important customers. They therefore briefed Stagestruck, which initially suggested using a private train, and various other agencies.
Train Chartering supported the agencies in tendering for the business, and then further developed a close relationship with both end-client and Stagestruck, the winning agency. This is a familiar process for Train Chartering, which has been supplying charters to corporate and private clients for over 10 years.
The journey went smoothly; the return run being quite possibly close to a record for a private charter train.
270 passengers all enjoyed a typical full cooked breakfast outbound provided by the train caterers. People from all over the world enjoy this quintessentially British meal on the charters operated by Train Chartering. Despite the fast journey, caterers delivered a 3-course dinner on the return.
One French delegate commented that the level of onboard service was to their own standards.
Simon Pielow of Train Chartering is very pleased, "This is a considerable compliment from someone who sells fine motor cars to a demanding clientele. He knows about good service and, being French, fine dining." He adds, "This train with its high-profile passengers and excellent service underlines what we have been saying for over 10 years - a private train is the best way to travel on earth!"
Train Chartering has a stable of luxury train offerings, which also includes Private Rail Cars and the Luxury Train Club. The private train was sympathetically branded however Soundwave Express illustrates the ultimate themed and branded train. Transport Charter offers multi-modal passenger charter options for when a train is not appropriate.
The Train Chartering group is expert in the provision of luxury transport options, primarily in the UK, Europe or the USA; the client chooses hotels and other travel elements. This allows the focus to be on the crucial and often under-planned supply of transportation, preferably exclusively by rail or by other means.
