Train services between Aberdeen and Edinburgh or Glasgow will now run on January 2 following a rescheduling of engineering works.

In a change to previously advertised arrangements, a Sunday-style service will be available to passengers travelling between the Central Belt and the North East.

The January 2 services differ slightly from the regular Sunday timetable and passengers are advised to check travel times before beginning their journey.

There will also be an increase in journey times between Glasgow and Aberdeen on the day due to resignalling work between Larbert and Stirling, and services from Glasgow will not call at intermediate stations between the city and Dundee. Passengers for Stirling, Dunblane, Gleneagles and Perth can use a replacement rail service to Dundee, connecting to stations to Aberdeen.

Network Rail is working closely with First ScotRail and other operators to minimise disruption for passengers and details of revised services are available from National Rail Enquiries at or phone 08457 48 49 50.

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
