You couldn't make it up, could you?
This, according to my irate husband who phoned me a few minutes ago, was First Scotrail's excuse for the cancellation of his train to work. Apparently they will be running an express from Bathgate which will bypass all the people standing on the platform in Livingston and they'll just have to wait for half an hour.
I'd love to know more details, but that has to win points for originality. The mind boggles.
