The new "Rochester Cathedral"Philip Hesketh, the Dean of Rochester Cathedral, unveiled the Southeastern train named Rochester Cathedral on Saturday 10 September 2016.
He said: “There cannot be many places where the Cathedral and Castle were built by a bishop – Bishop Gundulf. They stand majestically together on the River Medway and the approach by train from London is one of the most impressive in Britain.
“It is great that a train has been named after it and I was delighted to be there to unveil its plaque.”
The two Class 375 trains that have been named Rochester Cathedral and Rochester Castle run on Southeastern’s mainline service between coastal Kent and central London.
