West coast train services to be rebranded with Avanti logo [The Guardian]





Date: 27/11/2019

The trains, the staff and the entire management team may be staying the same, but passengers on intercity west coast mainline services will next month no longer be boarding a Virgin train but riding on a rebranded, 'ready and fit for the future', Avanti. The name Avanti, according to new operators FirstGroup and Trenitalia, 'embodies progress and forward movement', and is Italian for 'forward' and 'let's go'.
