'Rescue train' sent to passengers of cancelled Caledonian Sleeper [BBC News]





Date: 29/06/2019

A 'rescue train' was sent to help passengers from a Caledonian Sleeper service which broke down in a remote area of the Highlands. The overnight service to London Euston was cancelled due to a power failure shortly after it left Fort William on Friday. Caledonian Sleeper 'sincerely apologised' and said Sunday night's services would start from Edinburgh. It is the latest in a series of problems facing the rail firm. Since launching its new £150m fleet to great fanfare in April, passengers travelling between the Central Belt and London have faced disruption and cancellations.
