The 09.52 service from Aberdeen on Friday 19 September will be an alcohol free train until it reaches Newcastle. This means you will not be able to bring alcohol in any form, onto the train, or consume it whilst on board. We won’t be selling alcohol at The Foodbar, though other hot and cold refreshments will still be available as usual.
Unfortunately we’ve introduced this policy due to some recent anti-social behaviour on this service, to ensure that all of our customers can enjoy a more pleasant journey. On the day the British Transport Police, will be enforcing this alcohol ban at the station(s) and on board the train.
East Coast have prohibited the possession of intoxicating liquor from the above mentioned train services on Friday 19 September 2014.
It is an offence under Byelaw 4(2) of the Railway Byelaws, for any person travelling on the services listed above to be in possession of intoxicating liquor or to attempt to enter any of the above trains with intoxicating liquor.
