I have heard that Queen Streets will be half hourly all day on SundaysAnything being announced officially on new services/extra stops and additional trains? I know its too early too say but have scotrail and transport Scotland come to a agreement on preparation to the new timetable?
Well why not just use that service then if your travelling direct to/from Edinburgh?? I reckon they should leave the Qsts as they are.]Hurrah! At long last![/B]
Always seemed silly that Glasgow to Edinburgh via A>B had a half-hourly service on a Sunday that started earlier than the main line!
I heard this will be trailed in August, I just hope they do just make it half hourly with 3 cars as this will be no better then what we have now in terms of capacity. I have seen people left behind on the current service on Sunday mornings.I assume this is Edinburgh to Queen St? If so, it's very welcome! Going to Edinburgh on a Sunday morning is a nightmare at the moment.
Basically fewer stops, for faster journey times between Aberdeen - Dundee - Glasgow / EdinburghHeard that the calling pattern might change slightly between aberdeen and dundee, does anyone know more about this?
Perhaps ScotRail could consider what has happened to several of the smaller stations along the WCML, such as Norton BridgeIt's quite a task to close stations, it's not something you do overnight either
The 07:54 is shown in the new timetable on the Scotrail website and on NRE. Have you been misled by the loop taking longer one way than the other so journey planners miss out some trains as there are faster journeys available going the other way?The September changes are useless, let's hope the popular 0754 kirkcaldy to edinburgh service is reinstated in December.
They are some changes in ayrshire and don't forget paisley canal becomes electric as well which will see the introduction of the 314s and 380s. Will the 156s still operate on the line after december?
Any other changes being announced yet?
I imagine it is a knock-on effect of the increased frequency on the Ayr line.anyone know why they are moving the Glasgow to Paisley Canal Trains to depart 4 mins later in both directions
Looked at carnoustie, nothing much has changed until 1700 where are two new services starting/terminated at arbroath (1610 Glasgow to dundee is extended meaning the 1629 Edinburgh to inverurie service no longer calls at broughty ferry and carnoustie) the 1842 dundee to Edinburgh service starts at arbroath at 1819.The new December timetable for ScotRail (and the rest of the network) is now up on Open Train Times.
You will need to manually change the URL to get the December data, eg
All good news. However I think it may benefit the 16:29 ex EDB to miss DEE also - or at least set down only? It does get frightfully busy at times and one can struggle to get a seat!Looked at carnoustie, nothing much has changed until 1700 where are two new services starting/terminated at arbroath (1610 Glasgow to dundee is extended meaning the 1629 Edinburgh to inverurie service no longer calls at broughty ferry and carnoustie) the 1842 dundee to Edinburgh service starts at arbroath at 1819.
Then went to look at Sunday, 3 new aberdeen to Edinburgh services and back are introduced, all calling at broughty ferry, for the first time since when?
True, but presumably they've been used in service regularly, so some services that currently get doubled up EMUs will be downgraded to single ones?Remember that the Class 380s where also going to be running to Glasgow Airport, so there will be some spare capacity in the EMU fleet since the link was cancelled
