LNER IS RIGHT ON TRACK
THE London North Eastern Railway company (LNER) commenced operations on the East Coast at the end of June, taking over from Virgin Trains East Coast.
Services will be operated under the LNER name for at least two years until a new contract is granted following the termination of the franchise under Virgin Trains East Coast and Stagecoach. Virgin took over the route in March 2015 and invested £75million in improving services. It also made preparations to roll out the new fleet of 65 Azuma trains.
