Train named in honour of Royal Anglians

National Express Group’s 'One' railway, the train operator for London and the East of England, will be naming one of its locomotives "Royal Anglian Regiment" in recognition of the troops' outstanding bravery fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan and as a tribute to the dedication and commitment of the Vikings.
