About ScotRail

ScotRail Trains Limited is owned by the Scottish Government and supervised by Scottish Rail Holdings Limited (SRH Ltd). The public company now operates rail services in Scotland and will continue to be known as 'ScotRail'. Trains and stations will continue to be branded 'ScotRail'. The only change is the removal of the name of the current franchise operator, 'Abellio', from signs, websites, printed materials, etc. All passengers can rest assured that trains will continue to operate, tickets and season tickets will remain valid and can be purchased as usual. Founded in 1997 by National Express under the ScotRail brand name, it was transferred to First Group in 2004 and renamed First ScotRail. In 2008 it returned to its original name, Scottish Railways. The railway company provides services from the north of England to areas such as Newcastle and Carlisle, and on to London. Most rail services run between major Scottish cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Aberdeen and Dundee. ScotRai operates trains along the famous Highland Main Line in Scotland's beautiful Highlands. ScotRail offers a wide range of tickets, such as Advance tickets, Group tickets known as Friend's Fare, Anytime tickets which offer full flexibility in terms of time, Family tickets and Off-peak tickets for family travel needs.
