We’ve already mentioned the cross-country TransPennine Express trains from Manchester airport. Yorkshire is also well served by trains from London Kings Cross and Edinburgh Waverley in Scotland by way of the famous East Coast mainline. This is the route travelled by the romantic express trains of the Twenties and Thirties. Famous express trains such as the LNER’s Flying Scotsman and the record-breaking steam locomotive Mallard rode the rails here between London and Scotland.
