Hire a Train
The Battlefield line has been host to a number of private, public and corporate events over the years. Examples of previous uses include birthday parties, wedding receptions, on-location filming, fancy dress parties, demonstration freight trains and more.
Trade promotions like Red or Dead, Citroen UK driving days and television programmes such as "Rosie and Jim", "Heart of the Country", "Battlefield Walks" and Channel 4's "Four in a Bed" have all had scenes filmed at The Battlefield Line.
It is possible to hire anything from a single carriage to a whole train. So, if you are looking for an unusual location for that special occasion make tracks to Shackerstone Station and we will put you on the right line, the Battlefield Line!
We can cater for most tastes and give an experience that is hard to match and is even harder to forget.
Looking for somewhere different to hold your special event?
The Battlefield Line Railway can offer a number of venues with a unique atmosphere.
Trains will vary in make up and price. You can choose from a simple Diesel Multiple Unit to a full length Train, which can be hauled either by a Steam or Diesel locomotive for as many trips along the line as you wish. A full catering service is also available on request, and can be tailored to your exact requirements.
