ScotRail has announced that they are to add extra carriages to trains during this weekend as a result of Sport taking place as well as the Christmas markets.

Scotland plays their final Autumn Test against Australia on Saturday 25th November. Sunday 26th November sees Motherwell take on Celtic at Hampden Park.

The extra carriages will be added to trains between Edinburgh and the Borders, Fife, Glasgow, Perth, Stirling, and Dunblane.

Supporters are advised to check before travelling and allow extra time.

Motherwell supporters should travel to Mount Florida and Celtic supporters should be directed to Kings Park.

What did the officials say?

ScotRail Alliance Head of Customer Experience, Graham Heald said “We’ve got a massive weekend of sport coming up. Scotland will be looking to sign off the Autumn Tests on Saturday with a win. The first silverware of the football season is decided at Hampden. While trains will be extremely busy on both days, we’ve done everything we can to boost the number of available seats for travelling fans and regular customers. We’re adding as many trains as possible to services this weekend to keep people moving. From next year, fans travelling to the games will benefit from more seats and faster journeys on our brand new electric Class 385 and high-speed trains. I encourage anyone travelling this weekend to allow extra time for travel, and to minimise the need to queue, buy tickets in advance via our app or website.”
