Our policy

Make sure your luggage doesn’t exceed 30 x 70 x 90cm in size


Our trains are streamlined for speed and our small internal doors mean that the big stuff just won’t fit. It’s generally best to bring 2 small cases, rather than 1 large one. Then you can store your luggage overhead easily and you won’t block the aisles.

Where can you store your luggage?

Dedicated luggage areas

For larger suitcases that won’t fit overhead (not exceeding 30 x 70 x 90 cm)

Overhead luggage racks

For medium-sized cases and large bags. Think aeroplane cabin-luggage.

Beneath your seat

Think small cases, shopping, work bags and handbags
