The trouble with keeping something like this "warm" is that if you keep it covered where the steam/heat accumulates...it will make the crust soggy. Pot pies are best served hot, not warm....depending on your numbers...your best bet may be to place them on a griddle/warming tray/chafing rack

Being a key snack food down under, Aussies have this mastered by manufacturing pie warmers

I'd replicate in a low oven (say, 225F or so?), uncovered :-)

I am thinking of selling some pies roadside here in Sweden, but more the English style pies. But im a bit concerned about how long i can keep a pie heated before i sell, i have a lot of research to do on this but any tips would be great!

How about using the red rubber hot water bottle? The instructions say only use hot tap water because, you can really burn your self filling with boiling water. I use a silicon oven mitt and it works just fine.
Get a couple of those and put them in a ice chest and it should stay warm for quite awhile.

If you have access to a car for the power source. Heated "ice chests" are available. http://www.amazon.com/Portable...
