Train from lLondon to Edinburgh

We are taking train from London to Edinburgh second class from Kings Road Station. - we have two relatively large suitcases (26 inches). will we be able to check them? If not, will they fit on overhead?

There are luggage racks at the end of each coach for larger items. The overhead racks are for small/light items only.

Luggage space for large items may be available (usually in coach A) but you're responsible for getting it to/from that coach yourself.

Note you will be travelling from London Kings Cross station. Do not truncate or modify place- or street-names in the UK. Kings Road is somewhere completely different in London.

There is no checking of luggage on trains in the UK and Europe. You handle your luggage yourself.

26" cases will go in the luggage racks at the end of each carriage.

Just remember to sit on the right hand side of the train for all the best views north of Newcastle - if you have reserved seat and they're on the 'wrong' side, just ignore them and find others on RHS.
