East Midlands Trains launches a brand new improved timetable on 14 December 2008. This will see improvements for Sheffield to London passengers with faster journey times and more available seats to the capital.

Commercial Director David Horne said, “Thank you to everyone who entered this competition to find two new names. We received over 150 suggestions reflecting the pride people have in the region and the importance of this link we provide to the capital to them. Choosing two winners was difficult but I believe the names Sheffield Continental and South Yorkshireman will be well received by staff and passengers alike – we hope to see lots of business customers travelling with us on them to London from December.”
