Brad Pitt and "World War Z" are moving to Glasgow

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie created their very own A-List Express on Tuesday: The star couple and their children boarded a private train in London and headed for Glasgow, Scotland, with about 350 friends.

By "friends," we mean various production staff and crew from Pitt's latest flick, "World War Z," in which the father of six attempts to stop a zombie apocalypse. Against a ticking clock, natch.

The gang arrived at the Euston train station in two SUVs with their little ones -- Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and twins Knox and Viv, 3 -- and two big smiles, said the Daily Mail.

The three-car chartered train run by Richard Branson's Virgin made the five-hour journey to Glasgow, where production will resume, with exteriors dressed to look like Philadelphia.

Amenities on board included standard suites and bathrooms, a gift shop and a dining car, though no official sleeping quarters were available. The train is often used to cart professional sports teams, People noted.

The Pitt-Jolie clan and the film team were greeted upon arrival by about 100 fans.
