The first journey on the new electric ScotRail route took place early on Wednesday morning. The Class 385 train travelled between Edinburgh and Linlithgow, the first trip on the electrified line. It is one of 70 trains being introduced to Scotland's busiest route, from Edinburgh to Glasgow via Falkirk. The project has been hit by delays and risings costs. Further testing is needed before a launch date will be decided 'at the turn of the year'.
