1 min read

ScotRail has announced that customers along the route between Barrhead and Glasgow Central will see the introduction of electric trains as part of the Scottish train operator’s upcoming timetable changes.

From December 10, ScotRail will operate modern Class 380 trains on its local services between Barrhead and Glasgow Central. The recent electrification of the route has paved the way for more sustainable, eco-friendly journeys, ensuring that customers benefit from a more comfortable and reliable service. 

The timetable change will also see more rail services added in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Gourock, and improvements to service reliability between Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverurie.

David Simpson, ScotRail service delivery director, said, “Our December timetable change represents another step in our ongoing commitment to deliver the best service we can and encourage more people to choose rail travel instead of using the car, particularly during our off-peak all day fares trial. 

“From the introduction of electric trains to increased frequency on key routes and enhanced service reliability, we are dedicated to making Scotland’s Railway more accessible and efficient. 

“There is a lot of ongoing investment in our network with decarbonization continuing, and improvements across the network. This new timetable is an important part of that,” Simpson added.
