LNER launches new Azuma train in ScotlandLondon North Eastern Railway (LNER) launched its new Azuma trains on the East Coast route between Edinburgh and London at the beginning of this month.

Managing director David Horne said: “This marks the beginning of a new age of rail travel in Britain, with our Azuma trains being launched on our Edinburgh route.

“They offer more seats, better WiFi, more reliability and will ultimately offer faster journey times between the two cities.

“The original Flying Scotsman locomotive entered passenger service in 1862, when the train was introduced between Edinburgh and London.

“Throughout its 157-year history, the service has endured as a symbol of speed and excellence on the East Coast route.


“We are excited to be continuing that proud tradition with the first Azuma passenger train being our Flying Scotsman service.”

To celebrate the launch of Azuma services to Scotland, LNER unveiled its first official tartan, featuring colours that represent the regions and communities it serves.

These colours include purple (for the heather of Scotland), green (for the rolling hills and landscape along the route), and silver grey (for the tracks connecting communities), as well as blue, red, and white (to represent Scotland, England and Yorkshire).
