Hourly semi-fast services on the Shotts line were introduced in the December 2009 timetable, the first such services since the 1960s.  This doubles the service to Shotts, Livingston South and West Calder, and the faster services must be a boon to commuters there who were used to all-station working.  Another beneficiary is Bellshill, which as well as giving the world Sheena Easton, now has an extra service to Glasgow every hour which is non-stop (handy for Sheena's 9 to 5 'baby' if you think of the lyrics).  On 11 September 156 496 arrives with a semi-fast for Edinburgh.
