Four trains, four generations – history to be made on Yorkshire’s East Coast Mainline

Published on : Saturday, March 25, 2017

3Four trains spanning four generations will travel side by side in the same direction along the East Coast Mainline on Sunday 23 April 2017 for several miles north of York to showcase the past, present and future of rail travel.

 

It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see world-famous Flying Scotsman travel alongside two trains from Virgin Trains’ revitalised fleet – an HST (Class 43), an InterCity 225 (Class 91) – and the rail operator’s brand new train, the Virgin Azuma (Class 800), which is being built by Hitachi in the North East and will come into service in 2018.

 

Just one year on from unveiling our brand new Virgin Azuma trains, we’re delighted to present this unique event that showcases the past, present and future of rail travel in the UK, with Azuma travelling alongside Flying Scotsman and trains from our current fleet.

With our new Azuma trains entering service next year, this is an opportunity to celebrate the icons of the railway and look forward to 2018 when we’ll usher in a new era for travel on the East Coast route.
