The Scottish Government had previously called for improvements to the service, which has been running for almost 150 years and is currently in the hands of ScotRail.

The system currently has five routes, with trains running six nights a week between Euston and Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness and Fort William.

Dalton asks Strachan about Serco’s plans to raise standards, introduce new trains, and other aspects of rail travel that could impact the Sleeper.
