A brief guide to ScotRail train services over the Christmas and New Year period
The ScotRail Alliance is urging customers to plan their journeys in advance during the festive period and has published full details of Christmas train services on its website.
Points to bear in mind include the following:
On Christmas Eve and Hogmanay, trains will run as normal on both days until early evening, when services will begin to wind down
No services will run on Christmas or New Year’s Day
On Boxing Day, a reduced service will run within Strathclyde, with no trains elsewhere
There will be a limited service across the country on 2 January
Trains on all other dates will run as normal
Extra carriages will be added wherever possible.
A ScotRail Alliance spokesman said: “We are encouraging people to check their festive travel plans now and to leave plenty of time to catch their trains.”
Customers can check train times on the website and on the ScotRail app.
