British Rail first used these class 91 then GNER, and then National Express East Coast. Then East Coast took over till Virgin East Coast ran the East Coast services. LNER now runs the main trains on the East Coast Main Line. LNER was still using these class 91s in 2019. With the new Azumas taking over in 2019 and now (June 2020) the virus lock down has ment that most class 91s have been side lined. Even some of some of the brand new Azumas are in siddings awaiting the upturn in traffic.
