Platform 2 at Peterborough in 2019
LNER class 800111 Azuma leving platform 2 at Peterborough station on the 8th of January 2019 on testing or training.
LNER class 800111 Azuma leaving platform 2 and heading back to Doncaster after about an hour in platform 2.
Virgin East Coast in March 2016 had decided these class of new trains would carry the brand name of 'Azuma'.
When they enter service it will be with LNER, who will still use the name 'Azuma'. The new timetable was due to start in December 2018, but has been put back to make sure all the training and testing is done before they enter service.
This Platform was numbered as platform 3, more platform was added to it in 2013 at the south end, so the new 12 coach Thameslink servies to South London and Gatwick Airport could use this platform.
