SCOTRAIL have announced a new timetable running from next Sunday.

The rail franchise said the changes were after "consultation with customers" and a review of performance across the network.

Statistics have regularly show trains only end their journeys on time at Dalmuir less than a third of the time. Trains were also repeatedly plagued by cancellations last week.

From December 10, changes will include evening serices from Glasgow Queen Street low level to Balloch leaving at 9 and 39 minutes past the hour. And evening services from Balloch will depart at 14 and 44 minutes past the hour.

Evening services between Airdrie and Balloch will end and instead the trains between Cumbernauld and Dumbarton Central will be extended to Balloch and also now call at Kilpatrick and Bowling.

Another change will see evening services between Glasgow Queen Street and Balloch travel via Yoker instead of Singer.

ScotRail asked cusmters to check for details on the changes. 

Hard copies of the new timetable are also available from all staffed stations.

Graham Heald, head of customer experience at the ScotRail Alliance, said: “As we continue with our plan to build the best railway Scotland has ever had, we’ve made some changes to our timetable.

“We encourage customers to check their journey through our mobile app or website as some services will now leave earlier or later than they currently do.”
