London North Eastern Railway has announced that it has introduced additional services from today.

The extra services come as a result of the increased size of LNER’s Azuma fleet, which has been changing passenger experience since their introduction in May 2019.

The stations benefitting from these new services include Edinburgh, Harrogate and Lincoln. Edinburgh will see two extra services in both directions on weekdays.

Harrogate is receiving five additional direct services to and from London King’s Cross every day of the week.

What did the officials say?

LNER Managing Director David Horne described the new services as good news for many people, business and communities along the route who have been asking for better connectivity.

“We set out to transform rail travel with our new Azuma trains and I’m delighted that LNER is able to do exactly that as a result of these new services for locations along our route,” he said.

“It has been a privilege to hear directly from customers, businesses and organisations along our route about what these new services will mean for their region. The new timetable opens up huge economic benefits and makes it easier for tourists and business travellers to explore amazing destinations from London to the northern parts of Scotland.”

  1. Glad that LNER are running new services including Harrogate and Lincoln. Perhaps they should introduce more new services including Middlesbrough, Huddersfield, Scarborough, Grimsby and Cleethorpes. And new & existing destinations in Scotland such as Stirling, Perth, Aberdeen and Inverness.
