Lighting up the north
Getting together with close ones just got even more enjoyable now that our state-of-the-art Nova trains are being rolled out across our network.
There are loads more seats, bigger tables, more plug sockets, enhanced catering, Wi-Fi, onboard entertainment, bike storage, electronic seat reservations, plus much more.
Our new trains are packed with improvements and we’re really excited to welcome you onboard our transformed journeys across the north and into Scotland, including new services to Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Newcastle.
Settle in and switch off in one of the many more seats available onboard our fancy new trains. We’ve got more capacity available than ever before in First Class too.
You’ll find free Wi-Fi and tons of complimentary films, TV programmes, magazines, and more available onboard with Exstream. As well as plug sockets and USB points at every pair of seats to keep you juiced up for your journey.
We wanted to give our trains a name that reflects the positive changes and explosion of energy that will truly transform rail travel for customers and so, they are known as our Nova fleet. The word represents what we are trying to achieve over the next few years, embodying fast paced energy and change as we take the North further together.
