To The Open 2006

The Great Briton to the world's greatest golf tournament

Train Chartering proposes the charter of The Great Briton for high quality First Class travel to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club for the Open 2006, Thursday 20th July to Sunday 23rd July. The Train can travel down from Edinburgh or Glasgow or up from London via Birmingham; or it can be routed to suit the client's needs.

The Train is currently being re-liveried to be one of the best First Class dining trains in the UK. Each carriage is named after a famous Briton. It has intercity-quality ride and soundproofing. The air conditioned carriages are spacious and have none of the restrictions imposed by coach or air travel. There are panorama windows and armchair-style seats with headrest covers. All seats benefit from full-size tables with covers, flowers and lamps.

Fine dining is available, steward-served and chef-prepared from fresh ingredients in fully-equipped onboard kitchens. The stewards and chefs also work on the Royal Train. Train Chartering offers branding, theming & onboard entertainment options to charterers, as well as complete ground handling at stations.

Our sister organisation, Transport Charter, supplies and manages the client's transfer needs at both ends of the journey.

The Open is probably the world's most prestigious golf event. What better way to get there than on The Great Briton? The Train is secured on deposit.

Train Chartering is the pioneer of a coordinated approach to sourcing, theming and crewing special trains for corporate & private events, film locations & airport or cruise liner transfers. This full service approach is enhanced by ground handling services at stations.
