Train Chartering in cup-winning form with the Manchester United Executive Train

Train Chartering has provided Manchester United with an exclusive First Class Pullman dining train from Manchester direct to Wembley Central station for their corporate hospitality clients travelling to a cup final at Wembley Stadium.

The private train's First Class air-conditioned intercity carriages have panoramic windows, sound-proofing, good suspension, armchair seats and full-size tables, all of which contribute to a comfortable environment for Pullman dining and good conversation.

Train Chartering's charter train provided a far more comfortable way than coaches or normal train travel for these valued fans to get to and from Wembley. It is believed that the Manchester United Executive Train was the first private charter train into Wembley Central for a major event at Wembley Stadium.

Simon Pielow of Train Chartering can see why the train was so successful for Manchester United, "Boarding the private train in Manchester Piccadilly Station, travelling direct to Wembley Central with a full English breakfast on the way, winning the game, and returning from Wembley direct to Manchester while enjoying a 4-course dinner; it simply can't be beaten!"

On the way to Wembley, Manchester United's organisers were able to introduce themselves to every one of their clients and to distribute the all-important match tickets. Everyone had time to read the match programmes and unpack the gift they had found on each seat on boarding.

The return journey went without incident, the train providing a direct, hassle-free and relaxing end to a perfect day, arriving in Manchester Piccadilly a full 25 minutes early. Passengers on each journey all enjoyed fine dining, chef-prepared on board and served by uniformed stewards.

Train Chartering has a stable of luxury train offerings, which also includes Private Rail Cars and the Luxury Train Club. Soundwave Express illustrates the ultimate themed and branded train. Transport Charter offers multi-modal passenger charter options for when a train is not appropriate.
