Philosophy When Virgin Trains acquired a rail franchise in 1997, it was promptly engulfed by the public disappointment and cynicism that defined British rail travel. However, Virgin Trains soon found itself at the receiving end of renewed anger as the industry declined further in the ensuing years and people felt Virgin was failing to deliver on its brand promise.

Result Advertising helped Virgin Trains overcome these negative perceptions. It provoked people to perceive Virgin Trains in a more positive light, feel good again about train travel and, in so doing, generated a revenue increase of over £62m, an almost six fold return on investment.
