Filming at Bluebell Railway

The Bluebell Railway is the oldest standard gauge preserved passenger railway in the UK, and we pride ourselves on being able to offer the very best experience for production companies.

Our stations are ‘walk on sets’, and have been the backdrop for hundreds of feature films, TV dramas, fashion shoots and music videos for more than 50 years.

We have a dedicated and experienced team to support filming activities, with personnel representing every railway department – filming liaison officers, locomotive crews, guards, shunters, signalmen, station staff, infrastructure and line side staff.  

Our fleet of heritage locomotives, carriages and freight vehicles are available for use and are capable of being disguised to represent almost any nationality or period. For the more discerning producer we can also provide an historical advisory service in all aspects associated with railway operations, equipment and architecture.

All commercial filming requests are handled on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Chris Knibbs, Operations Manager,
