Trainbow turns two as GWR celebrates Pride with a difference

Thursday 04th June 2020

Great Western Railway is celebrating Pride month with a difference as it toasts Trainbow’s second birthday.

With local pride events across the region being cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, GWR is teaming up with Network Rail to celebrate Pride virtually.

Trainbow, the Intercity Express Train specially designed to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, made its first journey on 7 June 2018. Later this year it will be named after Alan Turing, one of our 100 Great Westerners.

GWR’s Business Assurance Director, Joe Graham said:

“Naming Trainbow after Alan Turing is the most fitting tribute to one of our most recognised Great Westerners. This is a double celebration of both the LGBTQ+ community and the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, with Turing being instrumental in the war effort. Over the last two years, Trainbow has continued to bring joy across the Great Western Railway and is our way of showing how proud we are to support our colleagues and customers who are part of the LGBTQ+ community”.
