One third of trains late
Scotrail trains were late more than a third of the time, according to official data.
Some 35.4% of the operator’s services arrived late or were cancelled. However, it was in the top half of the table of all UK operators for punctuality. The Network Rail figures, which were compiled by The Sunday Times and based on one week of journeys, use signalling data rather than the officially recognised public performance measure.
It ranked Hull Trains as the worst offender, where 66.7% of trains were late or cancelled.
The top performer was c2c, which showed 15.5% were late or cancelled.
