SCOTRAIL is to introduce a temporary timetable from Monday, on the Helensburgh-Edinburgh route and on lines throughout Scotland, to keep essential services moving during the coronavirus outbreak.

Fewer trains than normal will run on all routes, but as more and more people work from home or 'self-isolate', the company says the amended timetable will still provide "more than enough seats to meet demand".

The new timetable will come into effect from Monday, March 23.
