Customer service and commercial director for East Midlands Trains Neil Micklethwaite added: "It's great to be teaming up with Currys and PC World to offer something extra to our passengers this festive season, especially as we expect thousands of passengers in the week leading up to Christmas.

"Passengers can already buy their presents online using our on-board WiFi, but the gifting trolley will enable them to get all their last-minute gifts instantly.

"We're constantly on the lookout for ideas for how our services and facilities can be improved, and we think this is a great initiative that will hopefully prove popular with our passengers."
