We have a very limited amount of space on our trains to store luggage, here is some advice on how to make your journey with us as smooth as possible. Remember, you need to be able to carry your luggage and lift it on and off the train.
We strongly recommend that you bring one item of luggage, which measures a maximum of 90cm by 70cm by 30cm, because of the limited amount of storage space on board our trains. A handbag, small rucksack or satchel bag can be stored under the seat in front of you or on your lap. Soft bags and small cases are easier to stow and will be more secure in the overhead racks.
Any luggage in excess of this may be subject to an additional charge on-board our services, in line with the National Rail Conditions of Travel.
All of our trains have storage available:
Handbags and small shopping bags are suitable to store under a seat.
Rucksacks and hand luggage can find adequate space in the overhead racks.
Larger suitcases and large rucksacks can be stored in the carriage luggage area.
Our Voyager trains have a dedicated luggage area in Coach D for easy storage of larger bags.
If you are travelling far with a large amount of luggage, Coach D is the place to be
