Strike a pose: win train tickets in #EustonBackOnTrack competition

Passengers can pose for selfies beside a huge map of the West Coast main line for a chance to win rail tickets to key destinations from London Euston station.

Each Friday for the next four weeks, passengers who post pictures to social media using the hashtag #EustonBackOnTrack while standing on the massive map outside the front of the station are in with a chance of winning*.

The Network Rail managed transport hub has teamed up with train operators Caledonian Sleeper, Avanti West Coast and London Northwestern Railway to give away a total of 12 pairs of tickets.

The impressive 6m by 3m 3D vinyl artwork has been devised like a big boardgame backdrop on which entrants can strike their pose on the station piazza.

Between 10:30am and 5.30pm on Friday 15, 22, 29 of October and 5 November, two event staff will be there to help competitors take the perfect shot and upload their entries.

James Dean, Network Rail’s West Coast South route director, said: “After a tough 18 months for us all we really wanted to do something fun for the thousands of people who are coming back to London Euston station and promote the railway as a reliable and green way to travel.

“We’re seeing more people making leisure journeys than before the pandemic so wanted to celebrate this by joining forces with our train companies to give away 12 pairs of tickets to some of the amazing places you can get to from Euston. All you need to do is get down on one of the Fridays between 10.30am and 5.30pm, post your picture to social media using the hashtag #EustonBackOnTrack and some tickets could be yours.”

The aim of the competition is to show off the great places you can get to from London Euston, whether that’s cities like Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Glasgow or Edinburgh, getting away to the seaside in North Wales or Blackpool or the sweeping landscapes of the Lake District and Scottish Highlands.
