Celtic fans caught up in travel chaos as HUNDREDS left queued around block after Hoops thump Hearts 3-0 in Betfred Cup semi-final

Category : Scotrail , Scottish News

CELTIC fans face travel chaos following their Betfred Cup semi-final showdown with Hearts.
Hundreds of Hoops fans were left queuing round the block this morning due to a severe spike in demand for trains from Glasgow to Edinburgh.

And now supporters are claiming staff at Haymarket Station have been “forcing people” onto trains “when there was no room”.
Around 30,000 Celts supporters made the trip to the capital for the clash, with many relying on ScotRail services.
But supporters travelling from Glasgow Queen Street were delayed ahead of the 1.30pm kick-off at Murrayfield.
The huge demand also affected other services to Edinburgh, with some reports saying fans were left stranded as packed trains refuse to stop at some stations.

Fans waiting to board at Motherwell were left “stranded” after Cross Country services refused to stop at some stations and were advised to make their way back to Glasgow.
One fan said on Twitter: “800 fans stranded in Motherwell the train is refusing to stop! No way of getting to game.”

Another fan said: “Shambles, got to Motherwell from Cambusland only to be told Haymarket train wouldn’t be stopping. Currently on the train back to Glasgow.”
Marc Pollock added: “Trains full and knocking people back. Roads blocked. Buses on some train routes. This great idea of sending 30,000+ Celtic fans to Edinburgh is looking good.”
Services are expected to continue to be busy – as footie fans return from Edinburgh and others head to Hampden for the Rangers and Aberdeen clash.
ScotRail issued a warning to fans ahead of today’s semi-final clashes.

They advised punters to plan ahead and told how extra carriages would operate to help with the extra demand on services.
Punters heading to Kevin Bridges at the Hydro tonight should also expect delays and should plan ahead of their journey.
A ScotRail spokesperson said: “We have extra trains and additional services in place throughout the day to help supporters travel to both semi-finals, but given the numbers involved services are very busy.
“We are doing everything we can to get our customers where they need to be.”
ScotRail have been contacted for comment.

ScotRail CHAOS as rush hour services across Scotland affected by engineering work at Glasgow Queen Street

Category : News , Scotrail , Scottish News

SCOTRAIL services have been thrown into CHAO after engineering work at Glasgow Queen Street meant no trains could get in and out of the station’s high level section.
Rail operators took to social media around 6.13am this morning to deliver the bad news to punters.
 
Bosses blamed overruning work as a result of a broken down rail vehicle on the line close to the busy station.
And it meant that services across the country were affected.
Trains in and out of Glasgow to Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness a month others were being hit.
Replacement buses and alternative transport were being arranged by ScotRail.
And they expected the problems to be running until 10am.
