The revamped service from London to Scotland hopes to revive the luxury and glamour of overnight train travel
This evening, the longest passenger train on Britain’s mainland rail network will pull out of Euston and head for the Scottish Lowlands. Several hundred customers, in 16 coaches, will be transported overnight with eight carriages arriving in Glasgow and eight in Edinburgh on Monday morning.
This is a regular, nightly service. But tonight’s Caledonian Sleeper trip will be different: travellers will be able to journey in double beds, use en-suite toilets, eat fine Highland food, enjoy modern air conditioning, and experience a wide range of whiskies in the train’s Club Car.
