    Couldn’t see a thread so thought I’d start one. Is this station still scheduled for December opening?

    Everyone seems confident in the public domain at the end of October. The pictures look good.

    Should be an open goal in terms of passenger numbers, both Glasgow and Edinburgh bound, but retaining those passengers is kind of dependent on providing a reliable service, so hopefully ScotRail will stop abandoning this route at the first sign of trouble or during engineering at Queen Street.

    Haven’t heard of anything likely to cause a delay - the weather already tried its best but as far as I know it’s OK for 11th December.

    Well I intend to send my seagull along tomorrow for the first train if the weather’s better than it was earlier tonight - angry squawks about the driving rain and there being no chips wrappers yet and nothing to eat in the bins :rolleyes:.

    The Wi-fi seems very fast - I wonder if it works from the houses? It does from the car parks ;).

    This was Marie Celeste Parkway at about 7:15 tonight:

    For a brand new station the platform doesn’t seem very wide under the footbridge, once it’s restricted by the yellow line and the bins/lights?

    Bit of a random question, but does anybody know the rough distance by rail for Robroyston to Stepps?
