New London to Edinburgh rail service begins

21 October, 2021 (UK)

A new train operator says it wants to offer an alternative to cheap flights with a new London to Edinburgh service.

From Thursday morning, Lumo will run on the East Coast mainline and offer two services a day with fares starting from £15.

The first Lumo journey to Edinburgh Waverley left London King's Cross at 10:45 BST.

It will take about four-and-a-half hours, stopping at Newcastle and Morpeth.

The full London to Scotland route on the East Coast mainline is currently served only by the existing state-owned operator London North Eastern Railway (LNER).
