Train Chartering's rail-related location finding services has provided a private train carriage as both a location and crew transport for a TV production.
Train Chartering has made a complete first class carriage available to Kudos Pictures' production of Moving Wallpaper for ITV, to be screened early 2008.
The producer was able to use the carriage one way for filming and the carriage of actors, supporting cast, crew & equipment on the way to a key location. The carriage was then used for returning actors, crew & equipment to London.
Train Chartering's Simon Pielow is enthusiastic about this dual role for rail locations, "The private carriage was ideal for both filming and transport. The director and actors appreciated the smooth ride, quiet ride & air conditioning for easier working; returning in 1st class comfort was enjoyed by tired actors and crew."
Train Chartering's growing list of credits includes: 'Manchild', 'The Passer By' and 'Derailed' for the BBC; 'Ultimate Force' " 'Ditch the Bitch' for ITV; 'If Only' and 'Green Street Hooligans' for independent film productions; "Nenjil Jil Jil", "Dil Diya Hai" "Namastey London" and "Bhagum Bhag" for Bollywood production companies.
These productions required a mix of rail locations: trains running on the main line railway, filming time at modern stations, a rail depot and private railway locations. Train Chartering has also road-hauled a carriage to a non-railway site.
