First Shropshire-to-London train named
Readers of the Shropshire Star were asked to name the Virgin Super Voyager making the first journey from Shrewsbury to London. The Star confirmed that almost 2,000 readers voted for the name they wanted to be cast into a nameplate. The winning name is The Wrekin Giant, receiving 676 votes.
Martin Wright, the editor of the Shropshire Star said: “We’ve had an absolutely tremendous response to this competition which demonstrates just how strongly people feel about the direct link to London.”
There will be a naming ceremony on 15th December, the day after the service starts running trains between Shropshire and Euston Station.
