Train dis­rup­tion

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

NORTH-EAST rail pas­sen­gers are set for another day of dis­rup­tion. Trains were hit by de­lays across the coun­try over the week­end, and Scotrail pre­dicts the dis­rup­tion will con­tinue to­day. The provider said a timetable change caused the de­lays, as staff “re­quire a sig­nif­i­cant amount of train­ing” and would not be avail­able to crew trains. Over the week­end, com­muters on two ser­vices be­tween Glas­gow Queen Street and Perth and Aberdeen were forced on to al­ter­na­tive trans­port over the week­end. Crew short­ages are pre­dicted to af­fect the 10.41am and 1.37pm from Glas­gow, and the 3.33pm train has been axed. Train faults have also af­fected ser­vices from Ed­in­burgh Hay­mar­ket to Aberdeen, mean­ing trains will be formed of three coaches as op­posed to six.
