The booking office in the station and the iconic dome will be lit blue by Stage group, and the station staff will join in with the 8pm clap to show their appreciation for the NHS.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director at Scotland’s Railway said: “The booking hall at Edinburgh Waverley is a fantastic, historic space and it will offer a fitting back-drop as we light-up blue as a symbol of public support for the vital and incredible work of NHS staff who are tackling the coronavirus.

“Day by day, the stories of bravery and dedication shown by care workers, staff in the NHS and everyone else who is working to keep our people safe, and give comfort and support where it is needed, is truly humbling.

“We are grateful to all key workers across the country, including those in our railway family, who are playing a massive role in supporting the country at this time.”
