Special Bookings

Movie Shoots

Our equipment and location, as well as train equipment, are perfect for period movie shoots.

We have accommodated movie production, music video and magazine shoots in the past. Period productions can benefit from our authentic 1920’s and 1950’s coaches, using both the interior and exterior.

Apply decals and relabel our equipment to suit your project. Coach exteriors can be relabelled and can receive modification dressings specific for any particular movie/video shoot. Our various coach interiors have been refurbished to each reflect a particular time period.

Our locomotives were built in the mid 1950’s so our equipment is suitable for many period-stories. Some of the York-Durham Heritage Railway Rolling Stock includes a heritage coach from the 1950’s, a vintage Pullman Coach built in 1919, and a baggage car built in 1957. The three locomotives were all built in the early 50s, two by Montreal Locomotive works and one by American Locomotive.
