Extra train seats

MILNGAVIE and Bearsden commuters will now be able to find more seats on their trains.

ScotRail has added extra carriages – amounting to some 400 seats - as the final phase of its introduction of rolling stock in the West of Scotland, which has already seen the arrival of new carriages on the Milngavie line, which also carries the new Edinburgh service.

Steve Montgomery, ScotRail’s managing director, said: “This means we have added 1,100 seats to commuter trains between Dalmuir/Milngavie and Lanarkshire since May.

“Demand for rail travel continues to grow and our priority is to deliver more trains and more seats where they are needed most.”
