Fun commute home tonight. Normally a 6 carriage train from Edinburgh to Helensburgh, leaving Queen St around 5:30.

Reduced to 3 carriages today and absolutely rammed full from Queen St to Dumbarton. In this heat? Horrible.

To give Scotrail their due, they do have a queuing system to get into Haymarket after rugby games. I can’t be arsed with queuing so I just go to the pub until the queues die down.

I normally just keep on walking and get the train from Waverley - you miss the busiest services and it means you get a seat.

I do the same, stopping at a few pubs on the way.

Scotrail run and maintain the rolling stock, and put the staff in place to run the trains, that’s it. 

They also operate most, but not all, stations.

Problem would be solved if people stopped going to watch rugby.

The SFA should ask them for tips? They manage to charge exorbitant ticket prices and still fill the stadium.

Full of people with little interest in sport. And of women.

Only go to brag to the rest of their pals at the accountancy firm about how they had a can of beer on the train at 11am and how the atmosphere was amazing.

When I was in London and railway or tube stations got too busy they just closed the gates for people entering. Happened quite often. Presumably they don't have the procedure in place here, with staff and police knowing what to do.

Might work in theory, and folk in London will be used to it, but imagine the reaction on closing a gate in front of hundreds/thousands of pissed up entitled Tories rugby fans. Would not go down well.

Someone is treating the train to loud and pish dance music this morning, I assume it's acceptable to strangle them with my headphones.

Do you have to print the tickets off aye? If so, speak to the booking office staff before you print them off. I'm not 100% on this process tbh but there is something in my head about an admin fee if you change tickets. Not entirely sure what that applies to though.

The place where you bought them from?

You can get refunds on all tickets (minus a £10 admin fee), except Advance tickets where you can only change the date/time.

If it is within 24 hours of purchase they will do it for free (I am sure). If not there is an admin charge of circa £10. This was certainly how it used to be.
