Lumo news

Lumo, operated by FirstGroup company East Coast Trains, is to provide open access inter-city passenger services between London King's Cross, Stevenage, Newcastle, Morpeth and Edinburgh from October 2021. It will use a fleet of five 200 km/h Hitachi AT300 five-car Class 803 electric trainsets, and is aiming to offer passengers a high quality, cost effective and more sustainable alternative to flying or long-distance coaches, rather than to compete head on with LNER’s existing InterCity East Coast services.
