Alea iacta gare de l’Est.
The die is cast – our old name too. After many years of good and loyal service, we brought out old name to the depot station, in order to replace it with that of Trainline, as we announced
a short few weeks ago.
Since the acquisition of Captain Train by Trainline in March, both of our teams have been working closely together on a joint booking platform for Europe. To ensure that everyone finds their way around, it only made sense to have the same name and the same visual identity throughout all of Europe.
A new name and new colours
On our website:
Our website is now accessible at www.trainline.eu
. We’ve changed the logo and the colour schemes, though the interface and the product remains exactly the same. You still won’t find any ads or booking fees.
In our apps:
apps have also received a new paint job, in order to adapt to Trainline’s colour palette and logo. Though the functionality remains exactly the same. In the App Store and in the Play Store we’re now called Trainline EU. This helps us distinguish ourselves from the British app, which is called Trainline UK (and is for train tickets in the U.K.).
On social media:
While we were already at it, we also changed our name everywhere online. You can now get in touch with us at , @trainline_eu
on Twitter, and Trainline Europe
on Facebook. Feel free to come by and say hello!
A future with prospect
In time, our website and apps will merge with the services of Trainline, to offer a single and comprehensive booking platform for all trains in Europe. Whether your departing from Manchester, Dyffryn Ardudwy, Dijon, Barcelona or Rome, you’ll have all of your tickets in the same app. There’s still a long road ahead, though we’re at least now working towards our goal whilst sporting the same colours.
Thank you to everyone who has been using Captain Train, especially our loyal customers. With all of our heart do we want to make this collaboration with Trainline successful for you.
