    Avanti West Coast is a train operating company in the United Kingdom owned by FirstGroup (70%) and Trenitalia (30%) that began operating the West Coast Partnership franchise on 8 December 2019. It replaced Virgin Trains (sadly)which had operated the franchise since 1997.

    Pretty sure these will all be getting the full green/grey/white/orange livery. Would be great to see them in the game.

    Now all you have to do is make DTG listen for once and actually do something we want

    Doesn't it look ugly?

    I thought they looked quite nice in white, and Virgin red really siuted them, but that's horrible.

    I quite like it, particularly the way they have mixed up the design with the light and dark with angles along the train. Nice to see something a bit different.

    `Yes, I got excited when that post was released thinking that they were adding a route but no.
