The Return of Hull Trains

(C) D.Dowling

Hull Trains have started the preparation process for resuming their service. The company which runs trains between Hull and London Kings Cross only operates a handful of services a day but before September 2000 Hull only had one direct service a day from London.

The operator suspended its train service during March 2020 because of Covid-19. However, it has recently announced that it will be starting to run a limited service as of Friday 21st August and will increase the service when the demand is there. The operator is asking passengers to make sure they wear a mask onboard every train to stop the spread of germs and help control Covid-19.

When Covid-19 started to become an issue, Hull trains had just started introducing new trains called ‘Paragons’. They are similar to London North Eastern Railway’s and Great Western Railway’s Class 800s. The new trains have replaced the unreliable Class 180s. The Class 180s are used by Grand Central Trains and a handful of them will soon be running with East Midlands Railway.
