East Coast train gets the Skyfall treatment

The name's Coast, Easht Coast.

To celebrate the release of hit film Skyfall on DVD, East Coast Trains has launched a service in the Bond livery as a nod to the rail links in the 23rd Bond film.

For the next month the special train will be running on various services across East Coast linking London King’s Cross to Scotland, including the London to Edinburgh journey, renamed the Skyfall service.

Unveiled on platform 007 at King’s Cross it has been given the apt vehicle number 91007. No doubt something which will delight the armies of trainspotters who will gather on platforms along the route.


Wrapping trains in advertising is something of a rarity in comparison to buses, one would imagine largely due to the cost and logistics involved.

Can't deny though, as East Coast have shown, it can look rather impressive.
