I was glad to read in Ian Jack’s article (The London to Edinburgh train ride was once a thing of wonder. Can it be again?, 19 November) that, on the trains operated by Lumo in the east coast mainline, “every part of the train is electric”.

Even an exclusively diesel-powered train is better for the environment than flying, but a train with no onboard engine at all is the best of all.If only the same were true of the Azuma trains run by the line’s main operator, for it is not true of all of them.
