Anti-social behaviour is making Dalmuir railway station and the area around it a 'no-go zone', according to worried residents.

A crowd was pictured at Dalmuir Station to see the steam train but social media users hit out at the lack of social distancing.

Scotrail has launched the first two new trains which will run on cross-Glasgow services.
The refurbished trains, which will operate from Glasgow Central Low Level and will have wifi from next month, have been leased as part of a £475million train improvement programme.
They will have better lighting, extra cycle space and at-seat power sockets.
Seven revamped trains will run at a rate of one every few weeks between now and October on routes between Milngavie/Dalmuir and Motherwell/Larkhall/Cumbernauld via Glasgow Central Low Level.

From the 6th of January the full pre-dispute timetable will be reinstated with the return of peak expresses at Balloch and Milngavie and the half-hourly daytime Dalmuir-Bellgrove via Yoker trains. Under the terms of the compensation package agreed between ScotRail and SPT for the impact of the special timetable during the dispute, there will also be new peak hour trains at Ayr, Barrhead, Busby and East Kilbride.

A half-hourly service will be introduced to Wishaw, Carluke and Lanark by diverting the hourly electric train via Hamilton that until January 2002 ran to Coatbridge Central (which will however regain Argyle Line services in the evening and morning peak - and after the evening peak the Motherwell-Cumbernauld service will run until 2126/2159). So as to avoid reversal at Motherwell, most of the new trains to/from Lanark will run via and call at Holytown, providing a direct Hamilton-Lanark service.



Prior to 6 January the Motherwell-Wishaw via Holytown route was 'served' only by the 0643 Motherwell-Lanark and at the Mossend east-to-south curve by the 1721 Edinburgh-Shotts-Motherwell. The last regular service was the Lanarkshire diesel 'Green Trains' which ceased in 1974 on the electrification of the West Coast Main Line.
