East Midlands Trains Lays on Special Love Train for Valentine's Day

19 lucky customers and their guests have been chosen by East Midlands Trains to ride on the special Love Train to London today (14th February).

The winners were all chosen through a competition on Twitter by East Midlands Trains which offered people the chance to win a pair of First Class return tickets to London.

Competition entrants were encouraged to tell East Midlands Trains their favourite love story for a chance to win tickets on the ‘Love Carriage’.

The winning customers from Sheffield, Chesterfield, Derby and Leicester have travelled in one of the carriages on the 09.29 from Sheffield to St Pancras this morning. They have been treated to a complimentary romantic breakfast with Prosecco,  strawberries and red roses and on arrival in London at 11.30, were met by a harpist to serenade them into the station.

Andrew Conroy, Customer Experience Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “It’s great to be able to do things like this to treat our customers and help them to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We’re secretly hoping that one of our guests might feel inspired to make a special Valentine’s Day proposal!”
