Rainbow trains mark ‘Pride’


VIRGIN Trains, GWR and ScotRail have marked the annual LBGT Summer of Pride events by adding coloured vinyls to one train in each fleet as a public show of embracing diversity.‘Pendolino’ No. 390045 was renamed Virgin Pride and had a completed driving car appear in a revised livery with rainbow vinyls.

GWR added stripes to the cab of Class 800 set No. 800008, while ScotRail’s approach was more subtle and amounted to a ‘rainbow’ adaptation of the familiar logo on the side of a Class 170 DMU.GWR says its ‘Pride’ branding will remain in place until September. Pictures: VIRGIN TRAINS/GWR/SCOTRAIL
