Just a thought, wouldn't the EGIP project create the opportunity for future services between Glasgow and Edinburgh, in the sense of shifting some from Central? For example, I'm more so thinking that a North Berwick to Glasgow in 1 hour 30 minutes would be a more viable service than the current 2 hour and 15 minute service which currently originates from Central. This could help meet the original scrapped EGIP plans for 10 minutely services between Glasgow and Edinburgh, whilst creating a fast link on the heavily commuted route to North Berwick. In that sense, would it be worth shifting some services originating from Central (ie. XC) to Queen Street to create faster journeys which could save up to 20-30 minutes? Could Queen Street cope with the additional load?
