It's almost taken me a year to write this review of the last time I travelled on the GWR Pullman. If you enjoy dining on board a train then the GWR Pullman is one of the few fine dining experiences you can get on the National Rail network. All the Pullman services are normal scheduled trains and operate Monday-Friday except during public holidays.
Part 3 - some questions I've been asked in the past about Save East Coast Rewards
Part 2 - a look at the direction I hope to see LNER take in the future and also the future direction of Save East Coast Rewards
Part 1 - a look at the beginnings of Save East Coast Rewards
In our article 'Our meeting with LNER's Loyalty Manager' we mentioned that it was time to have a rebrand of our own. The main reason is because the name 'Save East Coast Rewards' is outdated, it was only intended to be used for the first few months and then if it was decided to continue the name would change to something more appropriate that indicated we were about more than Rewards.
We ran a poll on Twitter recently which wasn't intended to be taken too seriously as we know LNER will be sticking with Nectar at least in the short term.
Recently LNER have announced some temporary timetable changes, these will affect a small number of Leeds services and also the daily services that start and terminate in Stirling will instead start and terminate in Edinburgh.
The official statement released by LNER to the press states:
LNER have announced today they've launched a new 'family' ticket. The idea of this ticket is it gives you a fixed price for upto two adults and four children (but there must be at least one adult and one child) as long as you book at least a week in advance and there's availability on the train you choose to travel on.
