The ScotRail Alliance - taking Pride in its appearance

Friday, 15 June 2018

ScotRail trains have been branded with the rainbow symbol to mark Pride Edinburgh this weekend.

Two ScotRail Class 170 trains have been branded with Pride’s iconic rainbow symbol in support of Pride Edinburgh, which takes place tomorrow (Saturday).

The trains will be in service across the country, including on the popular Edinburgh – Glasgow Queen Street main line, and the Borders Railway.

The ‘Pride Trains’ are the latest demonstration of the ScotRail Alliance’s support of Scotland’s LGBTI community.

Alex Hynes, ScotRail Alliance Managing Director, said:

“I’m thrilled to support Pride Edinburgh with our specially designed rainbow trains.

“At the ScotRail Alliance we want our workforce to reflect the diversity of our customers. We’re building the best railway Scotland has ever had, and we need the best people to do this.

“I would encourage anybody attending Pride Edinburgh, or with an interest in LGBTI, to get in touch with us to find out more about the work the ScotRail Alliance is doing to celebrate diversity and promote equality.”

Jamie Love, Pride Edinburgh, said:

“We at Pride Edinburgh are very grateful that ScotRail is proudly supporting and promoting our celebration of love in the Scottish capital.”
