South Western Railway has unveiled its new trainbow train to mark the start of Pride month.
The new ‘trainbow' is a Class 444 train, No. 444019, wrapped in a rainbow livery, which began running between London Waterloo / Bournemouth / Portsmouth Harbour yesterday.
Every June is Pride month, celebrating the LGBTQ+ community from across the world. Whilst many of the Pride events have been cancelled due to the coronavirus, smaller and virtual celebrations are still set to take place.

Commenting, Glen Willie, Inclusion and Diversity Manager for South Western Railway, said: “South Western Railway is wholly committed to celebrating diversity and supporting equality. We firmly believe that diversity is a strength, not a weakness, and we are incredibly proud of our many brilliant LGBTQ+ colleagues. Our new ‘trainbow' is just a small contribution to this month's celebrations – even if they are set to be a little different to previous years!”
