York rail operator LNER launches a new service – The Fast Track Podcast
London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is proud to launch a brand new podcast series called ‘The Fast Track’ which offers a unique insight into life at LNER.
LNER says the series will showcase their people and the places they serve as well as the pioneering approach when it comes to delivering customers the best possible experience.
‘The Fast Track’ will introduce you to the dedicated team determined to make a difference, and focus on things like the digital innovation designed to make rail travel simpler and smarter.
The first episode celebrates LNER’s proud past and looks to the future.
This year, 2023, marks one hundred years since the LNER brand first came into being following the grouping in 1923 after the Railway Act of 1921.
Podcast host, YorkMix Radio‘s David Dunning, is joined by Bob Gwynne, the National Railway Museum’s Associate Curator and David Flesher, LNER’s Commercial Director.
They share some of the greatest achievements of the past century and look at how LNER continues to push boundaries to create even greater feats of engineering, speed, comfort and customer service.
David Flesher said: “We’re delighted to be launching our new podcast ‘The Fast Track’.
“Our Azuma trains call at dozens of destinations between the Scottish Highlands and London that are just waiting to be discovered.
“In LNER’s centenary year we are prouder than ever of our 956-mile East Coast route.
“There are so many interesting people and stories to share. Our podcasts will offer listeners a fascinating insight into life at LNER, from our colleagues working to deliver the best possible experience, to our commitment to the communities we serve, and how digital innovation is helping to revolutionise rail travel.”
