LNER (Formerly Virgin Trains East Coast & East Coast)
RE: East Coast / Virgin Trains East Coast
This is infuriating. I'm still waiting to hear from Mr Horne about the service to Sunderland that has never made it there the 4 times I have used it...

Arup (see involvement with Carillion) and French Canadian firm SNC Lavalin (see involvement with Gadaffi) amongst others.
The group will be led by Arup and will work under Government control.

LNER is to continue to use the Azuma name on the fleet of Class 800/1s.

Also, LNER branding is virtually everywhere. Seems like the Virgin brand will be eliminated within weeks.

RE: LNER (Formerly Virgin Trains East Coast & East Coast)
Also - with the new Azuma branding - does it remind anyone of the prototype HST livery (albeit a red version of it!)?

RE: LNER (Formerly Virgin Trains East Coast & East Coast)
Doesn't look good!

RE: LNER (Formerly Virgin Trains East Coast & East Coast)
Ooooh Dear. Good news is both are rebuildable.

However HST after that would have to be scapped, however another company has brought HST's from LNER when Azuma comes in and replaces them. So its to be repaired and ready for new owner.

RE: LNER (Formerly Virgin Trains East Coast & East Coast)
Azuma can and will be repaired. 43300, very unlikely.
