Latest news - meet the modern commuter train!

You won't find a more modern train available off the shelf for studio shoots. These trains are super modern commuter units that served London and the south east. There are 2+3 seating standard class saloons, a 2+2 first class saloon and a driver cabin. The train has modern button operated sliding doors. The vehicle can be supplied with working lights and doors. Whilst the train normally ran as 4 carriages coupled together a bespoke formation can be provided including just one of the carriages.

One of the ERS carriages in action... If it's a short job the railway carriage can even stay on the transport lorry whilst you shoot!

We can even hire you the railway track! These come in component form and can easily be moved about with a fork lift. The sections bolt together and provide a safe environment on which to keep the railway carriage and can even be used to move them along at low speed.
