A new Pride Train will be staffed by all-LGBT crew and filled with educational resources. The train's design incorporates all the colours of the progress Pride flag, making a poignant statement about the inclusion of trans people and people of colour in the LGBT+ community.

The 11-carriage, 265 metre-long train was waved off for its maiden journey by Avanti West Coast staff at London Euston on Tuesday, with the train filled with literature, stories and colourful posters and will feature Pride related information and fun facts during the onboard announcements.

The rail company has decked out one of its Pendolinos with what it says is the biggest Pride flag the UK has seen on the side of a train. (For more info and photos, Click Here.
