R40196 Avanti West Coast, Pendolino Pantograph Standard Buffet (PTSRMB), Pride Livery – Era 11
On the 25th of August 2020 Avanti West Coast unveiled a new livery for one of its train-sets. Billed as the biggest Pride flag the UK has seen on the side of a train, the new livery wraps the full length of the 11 carriages in the Progressive Pride flag colours. The first service of this newly liveried train was staffed by a LGBTQ+ crew with the train filled with literature, stories and colourful posters featuring Pride related information as well as fun facts during the onboard announcements.
This coach can be used to expand set R30081 to a 9-car set.
