Filming on Network Rail property

We manage a high volume of filming enquiries for a large variety of projects all across our network. Depending on the nature of the production or shoot, contact needs to be made to us through one of the teams below:

Commercial filming

The majority of filming, excluding those below, needs permission and fees apply for this. Please see our filming site for further information and location ideas.

News and current affairs

There is no charge for filming or photography for news or current affairs programmes related to the railway, but you must seek permission first. Each request is reviewed on an individual basis and we can only grant access to those that fall within our safety guidelines. Following feedback from passengers, we do not allow vox-pops at our stations and try to avoid facilitating media during the morning and evening peaks when our stations can be extremely busy.

We can help with requests for the 20 major stations we manage (below). The other 2,500 stations are managed by the train operating companies and will need to be approached directly. National Rail Enquiries details who manages each station.
