It was great to see our industry partners Avanti West Coast and Network Rail attempt to break the record for the fastest journey between London and Glasgow morning 17th June 2021, in one of our high speed Avanti Pendolino trains!
Though the record was not broken, the challenge showed the strength of the UK rail industry, and the importance of collaboration.
Excellent effort to everyone involved!
Congratulations to our 15 Angel Trains employees who completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge this weekend to raise money for our partner charity Railway Children!
The group set out on a 24.5-mile route across three mountains, climbing over 1.5km and have so far raised a total of £12,680. The money raised will go towards the charity’s outreach programmes in the UK, India and Africa, which provide protection and opportunities for children who are homeless or who lack parental support due to poverty, abuse, violence or neglect.
It’s not too late to show your support, so donate what you can on their website here: https://bit.ly/3dhv2QX
See some of the team and #UKrail colleague Martin Ward of the West Coast Partnership Development finishing the event.
