LONDON, April 20, 2011 - It's a record-breaking Easter getaway on Virgin Trains with advance
bookings around 10 per cent up on last year.
"Our trains are incredibly busy in the run-up to Easter, especially with
more people than ever switching from road to rail after recent disruption on
the M1," said Arthur Leathley, Communications Director of Virgin Trains.
"The high demand proves we were right to introduce 32 per cent more
trains in our high-frequency timetable just over two years ago. We will add
more trains for Maundy Thursday tomorrow, which is expected to be the busiest
day for people heading off for a break."
Virgin Trains link London Euston with the West Midlands, North Wales,
North West England and Scotland, and Birmingham with Edinburgh and Glasgow
through Cheshire, Lancashire and Cumbria.
