Proof that going by rail really is the most romantic way to travel

Yesterday Virgin Trains helped to make Valentine’s Day extra special for one customer, who decided to propose to his girlfriend at Warrington Bank Quay station.

Mick, from Runcorn, popped the question to his girlfriend, Terri, at the exact spot where they fell in love seven years ago - with a little help from Virgin Trains.

After hearing Mick’s story, the team wanted to help create a romantic and memorable engagement for the couple. They arranged for a busker to compose a song about their lives and perform it on the same platform where the couple met, before Mick got down on one knee. Take a look at how it went down...

Virgin Trains - Platform Proposal

"I thought I had everything when I found Terri, then we had our amazing children. Now thanks to Virgin Trains I have the one thing I never thought I would be lucky enough to have and that is Terri as my fiancé," explained Mick. "I’ve been blown away with Virgin Trains’ support, creativity and never-ending generosity to make my dream come true."

To celebrate their engagement Virgin Trains surprised Mick and Terri with a First Class journey to London and Afternoon Tea at Harrods.

The couple, who live in Skelmersdale, met at Warrington Bank Quay in January 2010 when they were both travelling down south to see their families - Mick was making a journey to London, whilst Terri was travelling to Birmingham.
