Lumo services already selling out as inaugural service leaves London

Lumo, FirstGroup’s new fully electric, affordable rail service travelled from London King’s Cross to Edinburgh for the first time today, 21 October as it celebrates its inaugural service. With the first passenger services beginning on Monday, 25th October, Lumo says early ticket sales are above expectations. Lumo offers a single class service which puts everyone in the ‘good seats’ with optimised leg room and larger tray tables. Some 60% of all single fares will be available at a cost of £30 or less. Lumo aims to contribute £250m to the economy in the next 10 years, create over 100 new jobs and generate over 1m extra seats on the network every year. Brit Award-winning singer-songwriter Tom Walker performed to volunteers from Lumo’s charity partner, The People’s Kitchen, during the inaugural journey. Also travelling was disability campaigner and train enthusiast Harvey Price, who was recently appointed Lumo’s Diversity & Inclusion Ambassador.
