Charter Train - Amlin Challenge Cup TrainTrain Chartering provided private charter trains to Amlin for rugby union's Amlin Challenge Cup Final and the Heineken Cup Final.
Amlin needed a private First Class train to carry senior management and guests to the Amlin Challenge Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. They stayed in the city overnight, and went to the Heineken Cup Final on the next day.
The Amlin Challenge Cup Train was reserved for them for the late evening journey back to London, which was an efficient use of the resource.
Lawrence Dallaglio, former captain of England’s rugby union team, travelled on The Amlin Challenge Cup Train both ways. Both he and other passengers demonstrated that a private train is an excellent, controlled environment in which known ‘names’ can meet the public; the journey became a party.
