HAVE you ever wanted to see East Lothian from a different point of view? Then wonder no more as a film showing the county from the eyes of a train driver has been shared by London North Eastern Railway (LNER).

The route the train takes is from Edinburgh to London King’s Cross, a route that goes through East Lothian.

It is filmed in the train driver’s ‘cab’ and offers viewers the chance to see the county and other scenery from the comfort of their own home, as lockdown continues and LNER reinforce their stay at home message.

You can view the six-minute long film at www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEvKOj74uJI&feature=youtu.be

Other routes featured in LNER's 'cab ride' series include Edinburgh to Newcastle with more to be added over the coming weeks.



Thank you for reading this story. While I have your attention, I also have an important request to make.

In order for us to continue to provide trusted local news, I am asking you to also please purchase a copy of our newspaper if you have not already.

Trusted news has never been so important - and neither has your support.

The Courier is not immune to the severe pressures brought on businesses up and down the land by the Covid-19 lockdown.

So if you are able to buy a copy for yourself - and maybe even for a neighbour too who is not able to get to the shops - then we would be very grateful.

And if you do wish to support us, please check with your local newsagent to see if they can deliver the Courier to you.

There is also an E-Edition that can be read on your PC, phone or tablet - just click the ‘E-Edition’ tab under the Courier masthead on the homepage of this website for more details.

We want to be able to continue telling you all about our community heroes: our NHS staff, council staff, teachers, carers, shop owners and shop workers, posties and bus and train drivers and the army of volunteers in every town and village helping the vulnerable.

But we need your support to do so. If you can, please buy a paper. And keep safe and keep well.

Thank you.
