Used the new Lincoln LNER Azuma service!

Just used the new Lincoln LNER Azuma service for the very first time, along with my friend Mark T. Got to say, I really did like it! I can see, myself using it a lot more in the future. Even more so, when the weekend service service, starts in December.

LNER Class 800 Azuma 800106 at Edinburgh Waverley

LNER Class 800 Azuma 800106 at Edinburgh Waverley, which also happened to be my ride between Peterborough to Edinburgh Waverley, which went via Newcastle and Carlisle. Which is, the first first time, I’ve ever done that route! About 99.9% of the time, they go straight up the ECML.

Also it was my longest journey, I’ve done on one of them! Got to say, I love the extra leg room! Also, I for one, do love the seats!

Been on a LNER Azuma at last!

So happy, that I’ve been on a LNER Azuma Class 800 at long last!

I only did a short journey between London and Peterborough. So can’t really comment much about the seats yet! But do, love the extra leg room.

But so think, they need to turn down the lighting! Way, way to bright, could do with wearing sunglasses, while travelling on the LNER Azuma’s…
