About East Coast Trains

East Coast Trains operates around 155 rail services each weekday and carry more than 18 million passengers annually. The East Coast route comprises over 920 miles of track and passes through 53 railway stations.

The current East Coast Main Line Company is supported by Directly Operated Railways (DOR), and is in public ownership.

Following the privatisation of the railways in the 1990's by the government, and after GNER's franchise expired in 2006, East Coast was briefly run by the National Express Group, under the name National Express East Coast. However in July 2009, the National Express Group announced that it would not be able to financially support its East Coast franchise after the end of 2009.

East Coast Trains was then handed back to the Department for Transport and the East Coast railway service ceased to be run by National Express (NXEC).

It is now a new subsidiary called East Coast Main Line Company Ltd, or very simply, East Coast.
