Train Chartering has been retained by AEG Live to operate the RockNess Express to RockNess, 8th - 10th June 2012, taking place beside Loch Ness. The private charter train will travel from London Euston, stopping at Birmingham New Street, Derby, York and Newcastle before arriving at Inverness. Train tickets include Festival tickets and transfer shuttles.
This is first train charter operated by Train Chartering to a festival in the UK. Previously, Train Chartering has supplied a fully branded and themed charter train for Soundwave, The Soundwave Express, that ran through Europe and as far as Istanbul, Turkey.
Simon Pielow of Train Chartering says, 'Rail travel is the best way to get to events such as RockNess from places that are remote from the venue. The RockNess Express private charter train adds further value by including shuttles, a programme of onboard entertainment and VIP festival tickets."
