East Coast 91111 - For The Fallen

To mark the contribution of, and the lives lost by, regiments up and down the East Coast route during the First World War, train operator East Coast has unveiled a Class 91 locomotive in a specially created wrap by designer Paul Gentleman. The new look for the locomotive, 91111, was first unveiled at a ceremony at Newcastle station on October 14, followed a few weeks later by another event at Leeds station on October 27, and a longer ceremony at London King’s Cross station on November 7. Further events are planned in the coming weeks.
