Registration notes: The London North Eastern Railway (LNER) tartan features colours that represent the places and communities along the LNER route, from the Scottish Highlands to London. The predominant colour is blue, for Scotland, with other colours including red for England, white for the white rose of Yorkshire (LNER’s historic headquarters), purple for the heather of Scotland, green to represent the rolling hills and beautiful scenery of our destinations, and silver-grey tramlines to convey the steel tracks of the railway that connect the people and communities along the whole LNER route. The tartan recognises the ‘LNER clan’ within the railway family, and is intended to be worn by employees, or former employees of LNER. It was unveiled at Edinburgh Waverley station on 31 July 2019, to commemorate the launch of LNER’s Class 800 train ‘Azuma’ on its Anglo-Scot services, which commenced the following morning on the iconic Flying Scotsman service that departed Edinburgh Waverley at 5.40am on 1 August 2019.
