ScotRail says its temporary timetable will still be in place this weekend when Gerry Cinnamon takes the stage at Hampden Park - despite an agreement being struck in a long-running row with a trade union.

ScotRail introduced a temporary timetable on May 23 to provide greater certainty and reliability for customers as a result of a significant number of drivers declining to make themselves available for overtime or rest day working, as is their right, due to a dispute over pay negotiations.

On Monday, drivers’ union ASLEF confirmed that its members had voted to accept an improved pay offer made by ScotRail.

The train operator said it is now working to resume the full timetable as soon as possible. 

But it says this is a complex process and is also dependent on drivers returning to work overtime and on rest days.

Glaswegian singer-songwriter Gerry will perform at the national stadium on Saturday, 16 and Sunday, July 17, and ScotRail is urging customers heading to the gigs to travel early, allow plenty of time for their journey, and to consider their travel options when heading home.

ScotRail has confirmed it will add extra carriages where possible to help people get to the gig, but fans are encouraged to get to the stadium early as trains will be very busy.

Gates at Hampden Park will be open from 4pm on both days.

The train operator is also urging customers to check their journey and consider their travel options, as there will be no trains departing Mount Florida back to Glasgow Central after the concert finishes due to the temporary timetable currently in place.

There will also be one train out of Glasgow city centre to Ayrshire after 11pm on Saturday night, the 23:30 Glasgow Central to Ayr.

There will be no trains departing Glasgow city centre after the gig ends at 11pm on Sunday, July 17.

Customers should be aware that space on board the last services each night is limited, and no rail replacement transport is available, so customers should check their journey and know what alternative modes of transport are available to them.

Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central prior to the concerts.

Extra staff will be on hand to assist customers, and ScotRail is reminding everyone that the carrying and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail trains and in ScotRail stations.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail's head of customer operations, said: “We’re pleased that ASLEF members have voted to accept our pay deal, however our temporary timetable will still be in place this weekend.

“We’re working hard to restore the timetable to normal as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we’re urging customers travelling to Hampden Park to see Gerry Cinnamon perform to plan ahead, to check their entire journey, and to know their travel options.

“There will be a very limited number of trains departing the city centre after the concert on Saturday night, and there will be no trains after the event on Sunday, so please check your entire journey and know what alternative transport is available.”
