New name announced for a very special train

Recently, Avanti West Coast gave the world a glimpse of how they’re planning to Live Proud, including a train dressed head to toe in Pride colours. But, alas! It needed a name. That’s why they asked you to find them a fitting title that would capture the heart and soul of Pride - what’s been achieved so far and how it can continue to make a difference long into the future.

After receiving over 1500 amazing names and supporting stories, they’re delighted to have discovered a worthy winner.

They couldn’t be prouder to reveal Progress as the new name for this very special train.

The winning entry was submitted by Edward Hitchon Godfrey. Edward works in the rail industry and has an incredibly powerful story about how Trainbows and Pride Trains helped him, working in the rail industry, to come out and live proud. A perfect example of the good Pride can do.

Avanti West Coast are look forward to welcoming you all on Progress very soon. #LiveProud
