Why are the trains called Nova?

We wanted to give our trains a name that reflects the positive changes and explosion of energy that will truly transform rail travel for customers and so, they are known as our Nova fleet. The word represents what we are trying to achieve over the next few years, embodying fast paced energy and change as we take the North further together.
