The first southbound LNER Azuma from Aberdeen ran on November 26, working the 0752 to London King’s Cross.
LNER Managing Director David Horne used the launch to announce that following passenger feedback, more luggage space would be added to the trains. The additional space will be created by installing additional floor-mounted luggage racks for large items, where some non-reservable seats are currently located. This will be the first major internal change to any train from the Intercity Express Programme Class 800/801 order.
