Frame Your Train

Travelling the UK by train is one of the most fantastic ways to see our beautiful country. Some of our favourite journeys cover everything from dramatic chalky cliffs and turquoise oceans to mighty mountain tops, and you get to view it all from the comfort of your carriage. It's also a great opportunity to get some good snaps of the UK to add to your holiday snap collections. 

Our pals at First Great Western have just launched a cool photo competition to capture the beautiful scenery of the UK. They're looking to see who can uncover some of the hidden gems of the South West, or simply show them the places the you've travelled to by train this summer. All entries will appear in the First Great Western Frame Your Train gallery, and will be put in front of a credible judging panel for a chance to win ‘Photo of The Week’ and 2 standard class train tickets to and from any destination of your choice.

To Enter

Take a photo of the view from the carriage window and then:

  • Upload via Instagram using #FGWframeyourtrain as well as the location of the entry eg: #Swindon
  • Check on the First Great Western competition page to see the entry and if it has been lucky enough to win 'Photo of the Week' and 2 standard class train tickets.

The competition closes 25th August 2014. View full details of the competition, including T&C's here. Good Luck!
