ScotRail leases more trains for busiest routes [BBC News]





Date: 07/06/2018

ScotRail is to run 10 more trains each day between Glasgow and Edinburgh. The rail operator had to reduce its service through the central belt earlier this year after the lease on some carriages came to an end. ScotRail said it had signed a deal to hire 10 electric trains, which should allow them to carry at least 17,000 additional passengers each day. The trains will operate on the main line between Glasgow and Edinburgh, via Falkirk High. In February, ScotRail had to cut the number of carriages on some of its trains through the central belt. The disruption was caused by some class 170 diesel trains reaching the end of their lease period while the new electric trains have been hit by delays.
