Lumo, operated by FirstGroup company East Coast Trains, provides opens access inter-city passenger services on the East Coast Main Line between London King's Cross, Stevenage, Newcastle, Morpeth and Edinburgh. It launched in October 2021, using a fleet of five 200 km/h Hitachi AT300 five-car Class 803 electric trainsets. Lumo aims 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.
