GLASGOW -- Scottish fans of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie described their disappointment Wednesday after the movie star couple, who chartered an entire train to travel from London, shunned waiting crowds and sent a Pitt-lookalike to fool them.

Fans gathered at Glasgow Central station Tuesday in the hope of catching a glimpse of the Hollywood A-listers, who traveled to the Scottish city to film parts of Pitts' latest movie "World War Z."

Pitt, 47, Jolie, 36, and kids Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne arrived at the station in a specially-chartered train, but dodged waiting fans by climbing straight into a blacked-out Mercedes waiting on the platform, Scottish newspaper the Daily Record reported.

A Pitt-lookalike was sent down the platform to try fool onlookers -- some of whom had waited hours for a glimpse of the family, according to the newspaper.

A large area of the station was cordoned off and a 14-vehicle motorcade was allowed on the platform to meet the Jolie-Pitts and their huge entourage of security guards and film crews.

Lauren Campbell, 19, told the Scotsman newspaper the Jolie-Pitts arrival was "an anti-climax."

She said, "I'm really disappointed. Everybody was here to see Brad and he didn't even wave. It was totally disappointing."

Pitt will spend the next two weeks filming scenes for his new zombie movie in Glasgow, parts of which were transformed to resemble Philadelphia, complete with yellow taxis and traffic lights, US-style road signs and American cars.

World War Z -- a movie about a zombie apocalypse -- is due out next year.
