It's not just Ayrshire and Glasgow which has been suffering poor performance on the railways since the start of the year. Those of us who had been moderately impressed with First Scotrail's running of the service are thinking again in the face of delays, ill considered re-timetabling and insufficient coaches. Willie Rennie MP has taken this up with them because it simply isn't good enough.
In West Lothian, they have changed the times of the trains so that my husband now can't get home until after 6, when he used to be in nearly half an hour earlier. He says it feels like they are slipping into the old days, with delays and cancellations for no apparent reason and a complacent, nonchalant attitude from staff.
