Transport Scotland has published a list of the busiest trains in the country. The data compiled over a six-month period shows the busiest services and worst-affected points along each route. Top of the list is the 17:21 service from Edinburgh to Glasgow Central via Shotts, which was found to run at a maximum of 146% of planned capacity. Transport Scotland said the data would help ScotRail 'improve passenger experiences' and make best use of its rolling stock. Last November, a major improvement plan was published in response to widespread criticism of ScotRail's reliability since its Dutch owners Abellio took over the contract in April 2015.
Transport Scotland says the worst-affected route is Edinburgh to Glasgow Central via Shotts.
