    Scotrail Franchise - Abellio

    What I would love them to do is to sell returns Glasgow to Edinburgh with the return valid for a period of time, I always use the bus because of this, £11 return vs 2 singles at Christ knows how much these days.

    Edinburgh - Inverness - Glasgow

    Appreciate the responses, I know more than most when it comes to trains, split tickets, advances, etc but routing guides and the like I ain't got a clue. I'm presuming that if there is any dispute on the Edinburgh - Inverness leg the guard will be able to check and confirm what you're saying?
