Virgin Trains launches new Sunderland and Stirling services


Virgin Trains has launched its brand new services to London from Sunderland and Stirling. The new services have been launched in response to demands from both business and leisure customers who have been calling for more early morning departures that will give them a longer day in London. Business, civic and community leaders joined Virgin Trains on-board both inaugural services this morning, with the new Sunderland service being met at London King’s Cross Station by the UK rail minister, Claire Perry, who named the Virgin Train ‘Spirit of Sunderland’.
