A NEW video series will de-mystify what life is like inside the driver's carriage of an Avanti West Coast train.

Tales from the Track, an eight part series, will provide a unique perspective of the west coast main line for avid train fans who are missing the experience during lockdown.

The videos will also feature commentary from two train drivers, Dave Egerton and Darran Townsend, who share stories and train facts.

Dave said: “I’m so proud to say I’m a train driver. I really couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.

“It’s a real privilege to have been able to chat with Darran and share some insight in what it’s like to drive high speed trains. There can’t be many better office windows.”

Tales from the Track follows the almost five hour journey from London Euston all the way up to Glasgow Central on one of the popular Pendolino trains.

The series can be watched on Avanti West Coast’s website.
