Our Azuma trains call at dozens of destinations between the Scottish Highlands and London that are just waiting to be discovered. In LNER’s centenary year we are prouder than ever of our 956-mile East Coast route. There are so many interesting people and stories to share. Our podcasts will offer listeners a fascinating insight into life at LNER, from our colleagues working to deliver the best possible experience, to our commitment to the communities we serve, and how digital innovation is helping to revolutionise rail travel.”
