Changes to services at Bishopbriggs and Lenzie

Friday, 22 June 2018

We are introducing a number of temporary trains to boost capacity on services between Edinburgh and Glasgow via Falkirk High.

Like the current electric trains that serve Bishopbriggs and Lenzie, these eight- carriage trains are longer than the platforms at the stations.

However, unlike other trains, they are not fitted with equipment to prevent doors being opened where the train is beyond the platform.

As a result, we have had to make changes to a very small number of services.
