Rail bosses sorry for fewer carriages storm

RAIL bosses have apologised to passengers after they cut the number of carriages on trains between Edinburgh and Fife.

Edinburgh West Liberal Democrat MP Mike Crockart wrote to ScotRail after constituents complained the 7.58am Dalmeny-Edinburgh service had been reduced to three carriages as a result of damage to trains caused by last week’s storms with people being left on the platform.

A ScotRail spokeswoman said: “We are planning to run the 7.58am service from Dalmeny with six carriages next week.

“We apologise to customers for the inconvenience caused by running fewer carriages, and thank them for their patience.

“We plan to repair the damaged trains at a number of different depots to complete the work as quickly as possible.

“They will be back into service as soon as they are fixed.”
