ScotRail adds more seats for Scotland v South Africa

Posted: 12th November 2018

ScotRail is adding more seats on trains to and from Edinburgh this weekend as Scotland look to follow up on their sensational win against Fiji in the Autumn Tests.

Scotland will play South Africa at the BT Murrayfield Stadium on Saturday 17 November at 5.20pm, and extra carriages are being added to trains between Edinburgh and the Borders, Fife, Glasgow, Dundee, Dunblane, Perth and Aberdeen.

Fans heading to the game are advised  to allow more time for travel, as queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Queen Street before kick-off and at Haymarket after the final whistle.

ScotRail will have extra staff on hand to help customers and, as with most large events, alcohol bans will be in force.

ScotRail Head of Customer Operations Phil Campbell said:

“We’re really looking forward to helping fans travel to the capital city to cheer on Scotland in this weekend’s Autumn Test.

“After last week’s fantastic win against Fiji, we’re expecting services to be very busy so customers should plan ahead.

“To help your journey run smoothly, allow extra time for travel and buy your tickets in advance on our website or mobile app.”
