Bringing luggage on your next trip with Hull Trains? Our Paragon fleet has improved luggage storage on board. Along with luggage racks at the end of each carriage, there are deeper overhead racks for regular cabin sized bags and extra under seat storage for smaller bags, so you can keep your luggage close to you throughout your journey.

On busier services, luggage storage space can be limited. Our onboard luggage allowance is 3 items per person, including a maximum of one large suitcase, a small carry-on bag and one piece that must be small enough to fit on your lap or under your seat if required. Please note that a charge of £30 per item will be levied for conveying additional items of luggage, or for excessively large or bulky items.

Get in touch prior to travelling if you have any queries about bringing items of luggage on board or find useful information below.
