TPE have bought 13 of the new five carriage trains which are longer than the units they replace and combined with timetable enhancements will mean 700,000 extra seats per year for those traveling to and from Scarborough.

The introduction of the new trains has also seen the building of a £7m train servicing depot in the town creating 15 new jobs.

A special announcement was made on the train letting passengers know they had been part of a little bit of railway history.

Clock was an hour wrong and wi-fi didn't work. Maybe just
