Extra trains to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow will be run by ScotRail, LNER and TransPennine Express as part of timetable improvements from tomorrow. They will be introduced along with eight carriages on peak-hour ScotRail services on the Edinburgh-Glasgow main line, as previously reported. ScotRail will step up daily Aberdeen-Dyce-Inverurie services by up to two-thirds following track upgrading. Direct trains between Montrose and Inverurie will be increased from five to 28 a day. There will be more seats on two Edinburgh-bound trains on the Borders Railway. Extra seats will also be added to two daily services between Edinburgh and Fife, Edinburgh and Dunblane, and Glasgow and Lanark, and on three services on the Edinburgh-Glasgow line via Falkirk Grahamston, with a new station at Robroyston.
ScotRail promises improvements to services in the north east, Borders and the Central Belt.
