ScotRail have announced plans to provide additional services for those attending Sunday’s Edinburgh Marathon.
Spectators and runners will benefit from extra carriages on trains between Edinburgh and North Berwick throughout the day and extra trains are also set to run between Edinburgh and Prestonpans, stopping at Wallyford and Musselburgh station to allow spectators to travel between the start and finish line.
Due to ongoing electrification and improvement work, customers traveling on the Glasgow Central-Edinburgh via Shotts line will experience longer journey times. Replacement buses will be in operation, however due to road closures while the race takes place, buses will terminate and start from Haymarket station until 1pm.
ScotRail Alliance Head of Customer Experience Graham Heald said: “We’re looking forward to helping people travel to the Edinburgh Marathon to cheer on their friends, family and favourite athletes.
“To make it easier for customers to travel between the start and finish lines, we will be providing extra services and adding extra carriages to our usual Sunday services.
“Customers traveling on the Glasgow Central-Edinburgh via Shotts line should be aware that, due to road closures, we won’t be able to provide any buses in to Edinburgh Waverley until after the race finishes. Instead, buses will arrive and start from Haymarket.
“Make sure to check your journey on our website or mobile app, and good luck to all the runners.”
