Join the ghost train – ScotRail unveils Hallowe’en trains

Monday, 23 October 2017

With the dark nights upon us and the days growing ever colder, Hallowe’en is just around the corner - and the ScotRail Alliance is marking this today with the launch of specially-branded trains.

The carriages have had their distinctive ScotRail logos altered to feature ghouls, pumpkins, bats and witches. The trains will be in service on the Edinburgh – Glasgow Queen Street via Falkirk route, and other routes across the country until the start of November.

This follows the success Pride logos on a number of ScotRail trains earlier this year to mark Pride Glasgow.

Syeda Ghufran, head of engineering projects at the ScotRail Alliance, said:

“If you’re dressing up this Hallowe’en, have a scream but stay safe.

“Please remember to store your broomsticks in the luggage racks provided, and customers are reminded to speak to a member of staff if they see any unaccompanied ghouls, ghosts or zombies.”


The Hallowe’en-themed trains, from the Class 170 fleet, serve the following routes:

  • Edinburgh – Glasgow Queen Street
  • Edinburgh / Glasgow - Aberdeen
  • Edinburgh / Glasgow - Inverness
  • Edinburgh / Glasgow – Perth / Dundee

The following units feature the Hallowe’en design: 170425, 170428, 170430, 170433*, 170450.

*170433 will be fitted with the branding later this week.
