London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has announced that Azuma will be introduced into passenger services to and from Inverness for the first time.

The firm says customers will experience a much more comfortable journey with more seats and an increased amount of leg room in standard class.

The trains also feature the latest in train technology meaning that they are more resilient and better for the environment, according to LNER.

LNER managing director David Horne said the new Azumas will officially go into service on the London King’s Cross-Inverness route on December 9.

“Azuma is a revolutionary train," he said.

“I look forward to giving even more of our Scottish customers an excellent experience every time they travel with us.”
