We are Virgin! In January 2014 we started a joint venture between Stagecoach and the Virgin Group as the shortlisted bidders for the new InterCity East Coast franchise.

We have invested in brand new trains and technology; 2018 will see the introduction of our brand new Azuma trains. Azuma is coming with more seats, more leg room, faster Wi-Fi, on board entertainment and faster journey times.
