Avanti's Record Run attempt


Avanti become part of railway history in a Record Run attempt

In just over a week's time, we'll be attempting to record the fastest train run between London and Glasgow.

Glasgow city chambers

Working with our partners at Network Rail, a special non-sop service will depart Euston aiming to get to the Scottish city faster than 3 hours 52 minutes and 40 seconds - a record that has stood for nearly 40 years.

Part of the industry's bid to showcase the benefits of fast and frequent connections between all parts of the United Kingdom. And, as the only train company that connects three of the UK nations, we're excited to take on this challenge.

The ride will take place on Thursday 17 June so if you see us flying up the west coast then give us a wave.
