Tackle scenic Northern England and the Scottish Lowlands with Just Trains’ impressive Newcastle – Edinburgh route!
The East Coast Main Line was born from a vision of linking railways together to form a through route connecting London to Edinburgh. A trio of railway companies were responsible for the construction of the ECML throughout the 1840s, with the route being complete by 1850.
Two of those companies, the North British and North Eastern, completed the line from Edinburgh to Berwick-upon-Tweed, and onwards to Shaftholme in Yorkshire respectively. The ECML runs via several major cities en route, including Newcastle which upon departure from the grand station sees the line pass The Castle.
While called the East Coast Main Line, the route doesn’t actually see much of the coast until north of Newcastle; as the tracks weave their way towards the Scottish border passengers are treated to rolling hills out one window and the North Sea out the other, and it’s this breath-taking scenery which you can enjoy with Just Trains’ Newcastle – Edinburgh route!
