Waiting on the 21:25 Stirling to Glasgow the other night. ScotRail app said platform 6. Board at front of station said platform 6. Screen above platform 6 said platform 6.

21:23 and the train pulls up at, yup, platform 9. No announcement. Giving the 20 or so people waiting roughly 2 minutes to run across the single-file, makeshift bridge that is currently there.

Did that mean also that it was the slow train instead of the nonstop?

Currently on the Inverness to Glasgow service.  Both toilets have packed in due to.....too many passengers!

They have suggested Any one who needs the toilett disembark at Stirling and take their bags with them to get the next train.

The last time I used the Scotrail Inverness to Glasgow service the same thing happened. It’s almost as if Scotrail are fucking incompetent.

Might have already posted this a while ago but was getting train from Edinburgh to Stirling and was on it early doors with quite a lot of tourists. Anyway the time came to depart and the front two coaches fucked off without us, looked a the platform screen and seen it had been changed to front two coaches only. I went to complain to member of staff saying there is still people waiting on coaches to depart unaware of the change. She sarcastically ‘well we did put a tannoy out’, I replied saying it would have been handy if you put in the actual train we were on too. She just rolled her eyes and fucked off.

Should have telt the silly bint that Tannoy is a brand name,  she should have said Public Adress System. 

It's like people who say Hoover instead of Vacume Cleaner.

How easy is it to get an upgrade on the Caledonian sleeper?

It's £45 for a seat but a hefty hike in price to £140 for a bed. But had heard that often people get upgraded -when boarding.

Is it just a case of asking if a berth is free and complimenting the staff member on his beard, or do they sell the rooms at a knockdown price.

Think I'd rather just book the £45 seat then chance my arm.

Yes I’m sure that’s how it works. Buy the £45 seat then hang around like a begging jakey b*****d waiting to be upgraded.

Don't compliment any female staff on their beards, that won't work.

Probably better with a seat. There's no comfort whatsoever with the beds. And absolutely no room. If you're a porker you'll struggle to turn.

Is that the new trains? I know it's got a lot more expensive if you're on your own, they don't allow randoms to share cabins anymore.

I travelled about a year and a half ago. I'm not sure when they upgraded so couldn't tell you if it was an old or new one tbh.
