The LNER (London North Eastern Railway) is the railway company that operates the East Coast Main Line, formerly known as Virgin Trains in the UK. Taking over from Virgin Trains East Coast in June 2018, we have ambitious plans to change the way rail travel is done. We want to create services that everyone loves, that our employees are proud to work for, and that our communities thrive. We kept our promise to maintain a seamless transition between old and new. On the other hand, we introduced a new model train 'Azuma' and started the future railway journey. Introducing more seating, more space and, above all, reliability, it's already been a huge success. Whether it's eating cake at your aunt's house, attending a meeting with your boss, or playing in the sand with your kids, we are with you make it happen. We proudly connect towns and towns, people and places. The southernmost point reaches London, all the way north to the following classic British cities: Lincoln, Leeds, York, Harrogate, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Dundee, Inverness. Each stop on the LNER is centrally located for easy travel. The new series of Azuma is even faster all round: from London to Edinburgh in just four hours! Why Choose LNER? Everything we do at LNER is aimed at providing a great experience for our passengers, colleagues and community. We put our heart into everyone’s journey. Together we are driving innovation and transforming rail travel. By being on time, having more trains and more seats, to the huge giant leaps in engineering like the stunning Azuma train. People, places and forwards top our list. We embrace the communities in which we operate, welcome change, and are determined to constantly improve the travel experience for everyone across the country. We are proud to be part of the team and it is because of that that we provide excellent service. Service is second to none as they care a little more.
