ScotRail issues travel advice to customers heading to the Edinburgh Marathon

Friday, 19 May 2017

The ScotRail Alliance today confirmed that extra services will be provided for Edinburgh spectators and runners on Sunday 28 May.

The extra trains are due to run between Edinburgh and Prestonpans from early afternoon onwards. All trains will serve Wallyford and Musselburgh stations, near to the finishing line.

ScotRail also advise that, due to platform extension works, a small number of services will start or terminate at Haymarket, rather than Edinburgh Waverley.

A ScotRail Alliance spokesperson said: “Please allow extra time for travel, and buy your ticket in advance, not on the day. The last trains of the day are likely to be busy, so please aim for an earlier service to avoid disappointment.”

Notes

The following trains start at Haymarket instead of Waverley:

  • 0934 Edinburgh to Dunblane (departs Haymarket at 0935)
