Welcome on board our new train

We’re modernising the railway to bring you new trains, longer trains, additional services and great new journeys to new destinations.

This will help address the increase in passenger numbers that have soared 70% into King's Cross alone in just 14 years. 

The first of three new train fleets is already running on the route - the first air-conditioned trains ever operated by Great Northern. These trains operate between King's Lynn, Cambridge, Peterborough and King's Cross.

Now, another new train - the Class 700 - has entered service on two trains on the Peterborough to King's Cross route.

The Class 700 train features:

  • More space
  • A cutting-edge information system that tells you how the Tube is running and even where more room is available on board
  • Wider doors and aisles to make getting on and off easier
  • Walk-through carriages making it easier to move through the train, giving you a greater sense of security
  • Two-by-two seating
  • Fully accessible toilets for disabled passengers and those with pushchairs
  • Baby changing facilities
  • More storage and spaces for full-sized bikes in the off-peak; storage for fold-up bikes in the peak

New destinations

Starting from May 2018 the Class 700 train will run through new tunnels to join the cross-London Thameslink route to give you new direct services to these central London stations:

  • St Pancras International
  • Farringdon (connections with Crossrail to Heathrow and Canary Wharf from December 2018)
  • City Thameslink (for the City)
  • London Blackfriars (for the City, the South Bank, Tate Modern and Globe Theatre)
  •  London Bridge
  • New direct links to Gatwick Airport 

All saving you time and hassle using the Tube.

Thousands more seats

Also starting in May 2018, we'll begin introducing longer trains and more services which means increasingly, more seats in the peaks.

And we’ll still have services to and from King’s Cross plus, in early 2019, a whole new fleet of air conditioned trains to and from Moorgate.
