Join the ghost train – ScotRail unveils Hallowe’en trains
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.
