The post boasts of “magnificent views” along the route and encourages you to look out the window next time.

It said, “Not to brag, but we have some great views on our route!”

“From lush greenery to beautiful beaches, there’s something breathtaking to see from your seat as you travel at 125 miles per hour.

“The next time you travel, take a moment to look out the window and marvel.”

However, astute punters have found that the photo in the tweet does not match the LNER route.

And claim the picture was indeed taken between the Dawlish and Teignmouth line in Devon – where the train operator doesn’t stop.

One person said: “This picture is a big miss between Dawlish and Teignmouth in Devon which LNER does not visit.”

Another wrote: “Too bad there isn’t a view on any of your routes…”

A third commented: “I’m pretty sure that’s between Dawlish and Teignmouth in Devon. Which LNERs don’t serve.”

“Do you think a railroad would know where their own trains go?”

And a fourth said, “Hello and welcome aboard that LNER Azuma to… Llyn-by-the-Sea?”

In response to customers, LNER said, “NothingBeats is an industry-wide campaign that includes destinations across the rail network.”

“So yes we don’t stop in Devonshire but the images are not train operator specific, instead showing the beauty of the views outside your window when traveling by train.”
