All about LNER trains

London North Eastern Railway (LNER) have been operating trains on the East Coast mainline in the UK since June 2018, when they took over from Virgin Trains East Coast. Their trains cover journeys from London King's Cross to popular destinations such as Edinburgh, Leeds, Harrogate, York, Hull, Newcastle, Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen.

LNER recently introduced a new fleet of state-of-the-art Azuma trains on their major routes, which use technology from the Japanese bullet train to travel faster, quieter and more reliably than ever before. Sounds good right?
