Hull Trains launched their new trains at Hull station in November 2019, named 'The Paragon Fleet' after the Principle Station in the North they serve. Hull Trains are an Open Access Operator and so receive no payment from the Government. The new fleet proved very popular with passengers in Hull and the East Riding. Hull trains had improved the service level and increased the number of trains extending more on to Cottingham and Beverley. Hull trains have helped put Hull on the map as a great destination city in the North.
A couple of months after their launch, sadly the world was in the grip of a pandemic. Hull trains are now re-building the business.
Please check the Hull Trains website for full details.

While the route via Hull may be slower, for many leisure passengers, good, easy connections are more important than speed. Hull station being a very easy station to navigate between trains if you are elderly, disabled, or travelling with a family and luggage. The other advantage is the Hull Trains start and finish their journey at Hull (or Beverley) so this gives more time to find your seat and store your luggage. This is much less stressful than joining a train part way through its journey, where dwell time in a station may be a couple of minutes or less.
