Trainspotters and those who love classic designs are being told to be on the look out for the old British Rail "Inter-City" branding on one of the regular east-coast trains.

Next year marks 30 years since the current workhorse of the east-coast mainline via Stevenage and Peterborough, the Class 91 trains have been in service - and in 2019, they'll start to be replaced in greater numbers by the new Japanese Azuma trains, operated by LNER.

There's been a slight delay in the original timetable for their roll-out after it was discovered the new trains weren't initially compatible with existing signalling.
