ScotRail has set out major changes to its timetables which take effect in December. The rail operator has promised faster journey times, more services and more seats for passengers. It said the 'enhancement' of its services was as a result of the introduction of new high-speed and electric trains and further electrification of the lines. ScotRail previously faced criticism for rush-hour overcrowding on some routes.
New high-speed and electric trains are being introduced across the network as part of an improvement programme.
