Connections between trains

Allow at least five minutes to change trains at our stations.

Sometimes you’ll need to change trains at our stations. Give yourself at least five minutes between trains – or more, if you’re changing at these bigger, busier stations:

  • Carlisle – 8 minutes
  • Edinburgh Waverley or Glasgow Queen Street – 10 minutes
  • Glasgow Central – 15 minutes

Catching the last connection of the day? Leave extra time, just to be safe.

Plan around engineering works and disruption

We do everything we can to minimise disruption – but we can’t always guarantee connections between trains.

It’s always a good idea to check for scheduled engineering works when planning your journey – and keep an eye out for last-minute schedule changes or disruptions on the day.
