To celebrate St Andrew’s Day (30 November), London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has revealed the latest design in the regionally inspired face mask collection, featuring a unique hand-illustrated stag.

The sixth release in LNER’s collection of face mask designs, all of which have been artistically crafted to celebrate some of the most popular destinations on the LNER route, the stag design has been created to represent one of the most iconic creatures from wildlife in Scotland against a vibrant Scottish blue background.

Passengers travelling between Edinburgh and Inverness or Aberdeen regularly enjoy the sight of local wildlife through their train’s windows.

Kate McFerran, LNER.

LNER communications director Kate McFerran said: “This St Andrew’s Day, we’re proud to share this uniquely crafted stag illustration as the latest face mask in our collection. Following the success of other regional face mask designs, we hope it will prove a popular addition to the collection by celebrating the beautiful wildlife across Scotland.

“We know how passionate our customers and colleagues are about the great towns and cities of the LNER route. With face coverings compulsory on all rail services in the UK, we want to ensure that customers and colleagues can travel safely and in style.”

The sale of LNER’s mask collection supports LNER’s charity partner, the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM). Almost £30,000 has been raised since the collection first launched back in July 2020.

Brunette Pereira, LNER.

Brunette Pereira, LNER production assistant from Aberdeen, was invited to model the mask and said: “It’s fantastic to see such a striking design being unveiled to celebrate St Andrew’s Day and one that instantly reflects Scotland.

“I’m delighted to be involved in the launch and to raise much needed funds for our charity partner, CALM in support of suicide prevention.”

In addition to the new Scottish stag, LNER’s reusable face masks, which are available for passengers to purchase online, include designs featuring the Scottish thistle, Tyne bridge, Yorkshire rose or London Eye, as well as an LNER Azuma pattern.

    • I like what you did with ‘veiled’ and face masks.
      But it’s not a lead story – just the latest one. Reports get posted to the website and are displayed in the menus in date order, so, when you looked this was the most recent. It won’t be for long.
