Virgin Trains promised to increase capacity on the West Coast mainline after securing a deal to continue running the franchise until March 2017.
The operator said there will be "significant improvements" for customers with the introduction of free superfast WiFi, more seats and new services.
Virgin Trains previously lost out to FirstGroup in the battle for a new 13-year West Coast franchise, but the process was scrapped by the Department for Transport due to errors in the bidding process.
