|If you are planning to make a TV advertisement, TV programme or a movie, we are always available for hire, and participate in whatever your requirements may be. We can offer many special features including either steam or diesel locomotives with a range of passenger carriages or heritage freight wagons. At Glenbrook Station, a range of vintage "props" is available, including suitcases, old sacks and boxes, milk cans etc. to provide the appropriate "atmosphere"
Over the years the GVR has been used for many TV adverts and films, including the NZ Steel ‘ColourSteel’ adverts featuring Ja 1250 “Diana”. Films such as "Tangiwai", "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence", "Bliss" and others have been shot at the Railway. Music videos have also taken place, one featuring the famous Topp Twins.
We can cater for all your needs whatever they may be. We are in an excellent location for filming, being in a quiet rural area with beautiful Franklin countryside as a backdrop. We also offer onsite kitchen & toilet facilities for your film crew. Give Robert Sweet, our Charter Manager, a call today to discuss your requirements, on 021 649 133, or email email@example.com
