Mums-to-be guaranteed a seat on Virgin West Coast Mainline trains

Virgin West Coast Mainline services have launched a new campaign for pregnant women that will guarantee them a seat when they carry a qualifying mum-to-be pass. 

The new pass will entitle pregnant women a seat in standard class, or first class if one is not available elsewhere. 

Virgin Trains has also launched a Cravings Collection of snacks on their trains aimed at mums-to-be, featuring the following snacks: 

  • Anchovies
  • Charcoal biscuits
  • Chilli sauce
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Chorizo jam
  • Curry sauce
  • Ginger biscuits
  • Ginger tisane
  • Ice
  • Marmite
  • Strawberry jam

The Cravings Collection will be available on selected services between Manchester and Euston. 

To get your mum-to-be train pass, visit your station Ticket Office:

  • Fill out a mums to be form at one of our ticket offices, bring along your Mat B1 form and a passport photo to get the pass.
  • You will be issued with a Mum to be pass and a National Rail ID card.
