Azuma Naming Competition - One Year of Azuma Running


LNER are celebrating the first year of running Azuma trains by giving the opportunity to name an Azuma.

Their press release says:-

"LNER are celebrating the first year of our Azuma trains being in service. Since launching on 15 May 2019, the new fleet has been rolling out and so far the new trains have taken more than 4.5 million people to their destinations.

Our Azuma trains have been designed to provide more journeys, more often with more style in a more environmentally friendly way, bringing LNER to the forefront in the future of rail.

Just look at what they've achieved so far...


To celebrate Azuma’s first birthday, we are excited to be opening nominations for you to be part of history by putting forward a name suggestion for one of our trains.

Suggestions could perhaps reflect the history of the LNER route by honouring old names, or new ideas to pay homage to the communities and destinations we’ll serve in 2020 and beyond. If there’s someone in the community who deserves recognition, a landmark which you’d like to see noticed or an organisation that warrants special attention, we’d love to hear from you!

The best suggestions will be shortlisted by the LNER panel, with the favourites making it through to the new fleet of trains.

To send your entry to LNER, click
