Nice to hear that the LNER is being revived....

My Grandpa was an LNER Engine Driver based in York before and during the 2nd world war...

Used to travel up to Londinium on them from Bristol...... 2 hour trip seemed miraculous in the 1970's

Recently travelled from Milan to Rome, 600km in 3 hours so they've got the jump on you Britons..... you'll have to lift your game

I worked in London for 15 years and was a ‘customer’ of British Rail. I still bear the scars and have the occasional nightmare.

Normal service have been resumed:

Cancelling services,

Shunting the blame.
