    Is the UK 'overdue' a serious rail accident?

    As many other people have said, luck has played a part in it. However, luck always runs out one day. There have been loads of incidents where even seconds have mattered. Chalfont and Latimer springs to mind, had that Chesham Met train been crossing onto the branch, it could’ve turned out...

    ScotRail estimating services to be disrupted until the end of day on the 6th of August.

    Most of the core routes in the Central Belt are pretty much gone. The roads aren't bearing up well either. I believe there are no trains to Helensburgh at all, with the e2g via Falkirk and Cumbernauld being closed to trains too.

    Not a very great day for ScotRail today, severe flooding across the network resulting in over 100 train cancellations.

    I'd imagine they are getting very close to their regular level. Even though they are every 15 minutes, Staff may refuse for you to board a service via Falkirk High during peak times if they know it's going to get busy. You should try a less busier route, for example via Shotts or via Airdrie...

    Milngavie-Edinburgh service

    I don't think the people of Helensburgh will be too happy that you intend to add more stops to their services. If anything was to pick up Bowling and Kilpatrick it would be the Balloch service, as Helensburgh has always typically been faster north of Partick.

    Announcements overkill

    On a First bus atm. After every stop the bus opens it’s doors at tgere is always an announcement saying to wear a face covering as it is mandatory.

    Currently on the 12:43 Saltcoats to Glasgow Central train. What do ScotRail run? A three carriage Class 380. This service does get busy at places like Johnstone. Even though it’s nearly time to return to normal service, they should really refrain from running 3 car units in single formation

    Apparently queuing has been enforced at Glasgow Central, or maybe that’s a ploy to make people use another method of travel

    Scotrail have been limiting passengers on services to Ayr and Largs due to the large amount of people travelling. Can only imagine how busy the last train from Largs will be as that is only a 4 car 380.

    Stagecoach West Scotland

    Will there be a possibility of the service they introduced as a replacement for the X34 to be returning? That is it runs as a Service 25 from Irvine to Beith before becoming an X36 to Glasgow.

    Stagecoach West Scotland

    Stagecoach never seem to do well when they try to stop at shopping centres. The X34/36 through Braehead is one example, not many people got on or off there.

    Stagecoach West Scotland

    That's not too great. I use the 585 up to Wemyss Bay sometimes as it provides an easier way to get to Rothesay...

    Wasn't there a very short X17 once that got scrapped a few years back from Kilmarnock to Silverburn?

    Major disruption at Ayr Station due to dangerous old hotel (from August 2018)

    Yes, Ayr really has not much going for it now. Particularly the High Street with the let down known as Ayr Central Shopping Centre. The Kyle Centre is in need of serious redevelopment as it has potential as a much bigger space than Ayr Central, it could fit so much yet the council are just...
