Hull Trains is an award winning, open-access operator running 92 direct services a week from Hull and the Humber region direct to the capital. In 2020 we made a £60 million investment in our Paragon fleet of trains which completely replaced our old fleet.

Our people are what set us apart and we are proud to have become one of the most innovative, enterprising and dynamic long-distance train operating companies in the UK. From our customer service advisors to our train drivers, everybody plays their part in looking after the small details and making sure every journey is a great experience.

Get To Know Us

The Story So Far

In 2018, we celebrated our 18-year anniversary and recent years have seen us introduce direct train services from Beverley and Cottingham to London for the very first time. In our first year, we ran three daily services and carried 80,000 passengers. This year, we will carry over a million passengers.

Our Future

From December 2019 onwards, customers will benefit from a multi-million pound investment which will see Hull Trains replacing its current fleet with new hi-tech Hitachi trains, operating on both diesel and electric traction.
