Luggage

Nobody needs the burden of extra baggage... 

What’s allowed?

We don't have limitless space onboard so here are some tips on what fits onboard our trains: 

  • Suitcases up to 25x45x70cm fit nicely in the racks at the ends of the coaches – if you go bigger then you will struggle to find room although we do allow a bag size up to 30 x 70 x 90 cm
  • Cabin style bags can go above your seat in the over head racks, keeping those personal items close at hand, there is also space in between some seats where you can stow cases safely
  • Smaller bags and rucksacks will be able to fit under your seat

If you are having trouble finding space for your luggage, speak to one of our staff who will be happy to help you – this may mean that you will be separated from your luggage so make sure that you label and lock your cases – we only allow three items per person

Luggage that cannot be stored safely or is oversize will be refused. 

Extra luggage

Extra luggage is:

  • Any items over your free allowance of three pieces

Refusing items

Your luggage might be refused in passenger coaches if:

  • Your luggage is such that it may cause injury, inconvenience or a nuisance or it may cause damage to property
  • If it’s going to obstruct doorways, gangways or corridors
  • There is not enough room for it
  • It has to travel in the luggage van for safety
  • The loading or unloading may cause delay to trains
  • Luggage is not carried or packaged in a suitable manner

 

Keeping your luggage safe

We’ve got a few tips to keep your luggage safe: 

  • Keep a close eye on your bags and check them regularly
  • Make your luggage unmistakably yours with a colourful ribbon, strap or tape
  • Label your luggage discreetly with your name, postcode and contact number
