Train Chartering has also arranged a private charter train service with a tailored timetable between Glasgow and London's Waterloo Station for 680 passengers to meet connecting Eurostar services. There is a second charter train for the return journey.

Special services arranged by Train Chartering include guest management at stations, concourse welcome desks, tailored catering & (through Transport Charter) complex transfers for various VIP parties.

Simon Pielow, Managing Director of Train Chartering, points out the significance of these journeys, "In this new age of rail, trains should be used as much as possible for large group travel; not only do they offer a cost effective & easier way to manage groups, they are also - always- greener."
