LNER launches unique face masks featuring locally inspired designs

As train passengers are required to wear face coverings while they travel, London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has launched three regionally inspired face masks for customers to order.

The first three designs to be released are of a thistle, Tyne Bridge and the London Eye. The masks have been locally produced and distributed as LNER continues to support communities and businesses on the East Coast.

Proceeds will go to the official LNER charity partner, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).

LNER Communications Director, Kate McFerran, said: “We know how passionate our customers and colleagues are about the great towns and cities of the LNER route. Whilst we all adjust to these new ways of going about our daily lives, including using our services, we wanted to ensure that customers and colleagues could travel safely and in style.

“Of course, we’re also interested to see if there’s any regional rivalry when it comes to finding out which is the most popular design.”

The launch of the locally-inspired face mask designs is the latest in a series of measures by LNER to support local communities whilst ensuring the safety of customers, including a directory on the LNER website featuring a list of local businesses producing face coverings.

Throughout the pandemic, LNER has continued to support local communities on the route, with stood-down colleagues undertaking more than 5,000 hours of volunteering as LNER Reserves, including in food banks, food distribution centres and tackling loneliness by staying in touch with otherwise isolated members of the community. Alongside this, LNER food supplies that would have otherwise gone to waste have been supplied to those who most need them.
