About our new Azuma trains

From the best ever Wi-Fi, plug sockets at every seat and more legroom in Standard, the new Azuma trains will transform your journey experience.

These trains are also more envionrmentally friendly and will run in eketric mode between London and Newark North Gate and then using diesel for the short stretch between Newark and Lincoln. The modern engines will cut harmful emissions by 90 per cent compared to our existing diesel-only High Speed Trains.

Communities and customers at stations across the route will benefit from cleaner air and substantially lower noise pollution levels thanks to the Azuma trains being quieter than the existing fleet which will be fully replaced by June 2020.
