A NEW "Pride of ScotRail Train" will arrive in Clydebank displaying the new multi-coloured Progress flag representing the LGBTQ+ community.

The Class 334 electric train features the new flag instead of the traditional Rainbow design, with additional stripes and colours to represent more of the LGBTQ+ community.

The train operator says it is fully supportive of Pride Month and the Pride of ScotRail Train will operate between the popular Helensburgh to Edinburgh line.

The train is being launched to coincide with Pride Month, however the vinyl stickers will remain in place until 2029 when the metalwork will require repainting.

Lesley Kane, ScotRail commercial director, said: “Scotland’s railway is for everyone and, this Pride Month, we wanted to do something really special to demonstrate our support for Scotland’s LGBTQ+ community.

“That’s why we are unveiling our “Pride of ScotRail” train, created by our own staff LGBTQ+ and allies network and designed by one of our talented team.

“It’s a visual commitment to our support and a reminder that we won’t tolerate bigotry or discrimination.

“Regardless of background or your identity, you should feel welcomed and safe when travelling.

“And it goes way beyond the month of June. This design will stay on the train for the next eight years, until it eventually requires repainting.”
