No stop in Glasgow for East Coast Mainline?

Train services on the East Coast Mainline could no longer arrive in Glasgow and instead terminate at Edinburgh Waverley station according to new plans lais out by national express.

This change will not take place until the December 2010 timetable is discussed and produced. It is currently under discussion now.

At the present moment the service leaves from Kings Cross, travels up the east coast of England, up to Edinburgh then though to Glasgow, however this could stop being the case. Direct services from Glasgow to London Euston will continue, however this does not help some people. One traveller said: “If the new timetable changes go ahead, I hope alternative train routes from England to Glasgow will be sorted as this train is a part of peoples everyday working life.”

There will be a significant amount of people affected by this change and many will have to find alternative routes. A lot of travellers are just looking for reassurance at the moment. The East Coast Mainline is transferring to a Government controlled  company ‘East Coast’ before midnight on the 13th of November.

If the new timetable changes are brought in this will not be linked to the nationalisation of the East Coast Mainline.
