This charming film, created by Anomaly and directed by Andreas Nilsson through Biscuit, celebrates British train travel with a lyrical portrait of disparate characters all sharing a journey home along LNER’s London to Edinburgh route.

Nicely capturing the slightly snoozy, dreamy state one falls into on a train journey, This Is Our LNER depicts people catching up on reading, doodling and daydreaming while gazing out of the window; a man drifts in and out of sleep counting animated sheep, a family play Jenga together, a bunch of Roman centurions returning from a battle re-enactment tease each other. It has something of the cosy quirkiness of a film by Wes Anderson, who made good use of the train journey setting in his H&M Christmas spot of 2016.  

Anomaly CD, Craig Ainsley commented: “There’s something about getting the train home. And there’s something about the wonderful people and places of the east coast. Our new film aims to capture the feeling of being tucked away in a train carriage whilst being whisked homeward across the glorious east coast landscape.”
