“The design is inspired by the wonderful new tail fin design featuring the Union Jack flag, that the Red Arrows have just unveiled on their famous jets. It represents Lincolnshire pride of having the Red Arrows based in the County. The baron has been painted with nominated young people from Lincoln. Thanks go to Hannah, Maisie, Abbie, Lucy, Talia, Sophie, Becci, Jake and Shaeleigh who have done an exceptional job. Well done to a great team.” – Ruth Pigott

We at Virgin Trains East Coast are really excited to be helping promote the great events taking place in Lincoln this year as part of Magna Carta 800. Our baron has already been out and about on the East Coast Main Line and we hope it will attract lots of people to Lincoln on our special trains to enjoy the celebrations.
