SIGNIFICANT SCOTRAIL REDUCTION FROM MONDAY 23 MAY. The much-heralded half-hourly service from Stow will be cut significantly from Monday 23 as part of Scotrail’s emergency timetable, caused by a shortage of drivers.
In particular, there will be only three trains departing Stow for Edinburgh before 0900 and only three departing Edinburgh for Tweedbank after 1800hrs. The revised timetables for Saturdays and Sundays has yet to be published.
The service has therefore been significantly reduced which, taken into account with the still reduced bus services, may make travel difficult for Borderers and those which may run might be overcrowded.
