Abellio ScotRail,[2] operating services under the name ScotRail, is the national train operating company of Scotland. A subsidiary of Abellio, it has operated the ScotRail franchise since 1 April 2015, taking over from predecessor First ScotRail. The franchise will end in March 2022 and will be replaced by ScotRail Trains, an operator of last resort.

History[edit]

In November 2013, Transport Scotland announced that Abellio, Arriva, FirstGroup, MTR Corporation and National Express had been shortlisted to bid for the new ScotRail franchise.[3] In October 2014, the franchise was awarded to Abellio.[4][5][6] The franchise was to operate for seven years with a three-year extension available contingent on performance criteria being met.[5] Abellio began operating the franchise on 1 April 2015 and it opened the Borders Railway on 6 September 2015.[7]

In June 2016, the RMT union announced that train conductors would be going on strike several times during the summer months in protest at more driver only trains.[8] Six 24-hour and three 48-hour strikes were held on ScotRail services during June and July 2016. An agreement was reached in September 2016, bringing an end to the dispute. It was agreed that the new Class 385 trains would have the doors controlled by both the driver and the conductors, the driver opening the doors and the conductors closing them.[9]

On 20 January 2017 the managing director of ScotRail and the ScotRail alliance stepped down from his role after 18 months in the company.[10] Within a few days Alex Hynes was named as the new managing director.[11]

Having failed to meet the performance criteria necessary to gain a three-year extension, the franchise will conclude on 31 March 2022 with ScotRail Trains to take over the franchise as an operator of last resort.[12]

Operations[edit]

Services[edit]

Abellio ScotRail took over all of the services operated by First ScotRail on 1 April 2015, except for the Caledonian Sleeper services, which were transferred to a separate franchise operated by Serco.[13] The franchise agreement requires the introduction of 'Great Scottish Scenic Railway' trains on the West Highland, Far North, Kyle, Borders Railway and Glasgow South Western lines. Steam special services are also promoted by Abellio ScotRail.[14][15]

Due to the delayed delivery of ScotRail's refurbished Inter7City trains, the company was unable to introduce its new Intercity timetable at the same time as the introduction of the Edinburgh - Arbroath and Montrose - Inverurie commuter services. As a result, the stopping pattern of Glasgow/Edinburgh to Aberdeen services is irregular, making calls at many stations at which there is now a frequent stopping service. The improved Glasgow/Edinburgh to Inverness timetable will be introduced along with the Glasgow/Edinburgh to Aberdeen timetable from December 2020.

With the completion of the Inverness - Aberdeen Improvement Plan, an hourly service will operate between the two cities, with half hourly services between Elgin and Inverness/Inverurie and Aberdeen that will serve the two new stations of Dalcross and Kintore. In addition to this, a selection of Inter7City services will operate between Inverness and the Central Belt via Aberdeen, calling at only a couple of stations between Inverness and Aberdeen.

Current off-peak services are as follows.[16]

Demise[edit]

In December 2019, it was announced by the Scottish government that the franchise would end in 2022 due to poor performance. It was also confirmed that an operator of last resort (OLR) controlled by the Scottish government would take over the franchise in April 2022.

In March 2021, it was announced that the RMT union was to ballot conductors for an indefinite overtime ban following Abellio ScotRail refusing to pay its conductors overtime payments for working rest days, which led to no services on many routes. The following month in April, ticket examiners were then balloted for the same dispute, and most trains operated by ScotRail have not run on Sundays as a result. The dispute ended in October, with a deal reached between the union and the operator[17]

Stations[edit]

Abellio ScotRail operates 352 stations in Scotland.[18] Not included are Prestwick International Airport station, owned and operated by the airport,[19] as well as both Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Central, which are managed by Network Rail.[20] Abellio ScotRail operates Lockerbie even though none of its services call there. It also took over management of Dunbar, previously operated by Virgin Trains East Coast, in June 2015.[21]

Depots[edit]

Abellio ScotRail's fleet is maintained at Edinburgh Haymarket, Glasgow Eastfield, Glasgow Shields Road, Corkerhill Glasgow Yoker, Ayr Townhead, Bathgate and Inverness as well as a newly built EMU stabling depot at Millerhill in Midlothian.

Rolling stock[edit]

Abellio ScotRail operates a diverse fleet of DMUs, EMUs and loco-hauled stock. From Sunday 10 December 2017, Class 380 EMUs were introduced onto services between Glasgow and Edinburgh via Falkirk High (also serving Croy, Polmont, Linlithgow and Haymarket). This was the first step in creating an entirely electric service between the two cities which is now expected to start in October 2018 with Class 385 EMUs, which should have entered service in December 2017, but were subsequently delayed due to a windscreen fault.[needs update][22][23]

Current fleet[edit]

Abellio ScotRail was intending to introduce a brand new fleet of 46 three-car and 24 four-car Class 385 electric trains from December 2017, to operate services on the lines being electrified as part of the Edinburgh to Glasgow Improvement Programme. However, due to infrastructure problems, and issues with the trains involving software and windscreen issues, their introduction was delayed until September. To cover for the shortfall in rolling stock, Abellio ScotRail hired 10 Class 365 units from Great Northern. These entered service in June 2018.[24]

From October 2018, Abellio ScotRail introduced former Great Western Railway HSTs on services between Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, branded as "Inter7City" in reference to Scotland's seven main cities.[25][5][26] The Mark 3 coaches all have refurbished interiors and are fitted with powered doors. There will be 26 sets: 17 five-car and 9 four-car trains.[25] As with the Class 385s there have been delays getting the refurbished trains into service. As a result, some HST sets were pressed into service without refurbishment to allow for others to have refurbishment completed. As of May 2020, ScotRail operates an entirely refurbished HST fleet.

This new rolling stock resulted in ten Class 156, eight Class 158 and 21 Class 170 sets returning to their leasing companies when their leases expired in 2018.[27] Transport Scotland negotiated to retain an extra 13 Class 170s to support services through Fife to Aberdeen, the Fife Circle Line (replacing the Class 68/Mark 2 sets), and the Borders railway.[28] Arriva Rail North received five of the 156s, all the 158s and 16 of the 170s.[29] Five Class 170s (170416-170420) moved to East Midlands Railway in 2020.[30]
