Edinburgh to London via Train

Jump to last reply

I am planning a holiday in the UK and need some advice on trains. I fly into LHR on April 28 and am planning to catch a flight later that afternoon to Edinburgh; flights are cheap and it would be convenient since I'm already at LHR. After 4-5 days in Edinburgh, I plan to take the train to London. A few questions:
1. Is the train ride from Edinburgh to London using the same route as the London to Edinburgh train? If not, is one direction more scenic than the other? I could adapt my travel plans to accomodate a more scenic train ride.
2. Is one train line better than the other? I've seen Virgin, the Flying Scotsman, and other names and am a little confused. Do these companies operate their own trains (thus the trains may be equipped differently or provide different services to their passengers) or are they just selling seats on one common (government operated?) train?
Thanks, I'm sure I'll have some follow-up questions once I've read your responses.
