And astonishingly, it is to be called... the London and North Eastern Railway.

Equally, did the Corbynites not notice the last time it was in public control as East Coast Railways?
#542946
Things you just don't get:

If, as we were told, the last time East Coast was under public ownership it turned a profit, how come business geniuses like the Grinning Beard and chums can't make a single bean, even with subsidy from our pockets?

More importantly: The trains - will they be repainted apple green or garter blue?

TBH after the way Southern and GWR have managed to sully the names of their once-great forebears I'm extremely trepidatious about this. The LNER deserves a better legacy than whatever this shite turns into.
#542951
Correct. I object to the way respected names from the past, run by proper railwaymen, are being used to give a veneer of respectability to mickey mouse, privatised shite.
