About the Event

Launched in October 2021, Lumo is a new, 100% electric rail service owned by FirstGroup that runs services between London King’s Cross, Newcastle and Edinburgh Waverley along the East Coast Main Line. It provides greener and cheaper long-distance travel for over 1 million passengers every year.  Join us for a valuable insight into launching a new Train Operating Company; a look back on one year of operation and a look forward to what’s ahead.
