A statement issued over the weekend from ScotRail has updated timetable information:

"Following the latest government update on COVID-19, we would like to reassure customers that everyone across Scotland's Railway is working flat out to provide transport for people delivering essential services.

"With the unprecedented global crisis, staff availability in ScotRail and Network Rail Scotland has been affected, as well as customer demand.

"That's why, from tomorrow (Monday, March 23) we'll be operating a revised timetable."

The timetable represents significant change from the normal daily timetable, ScotRail said, with a specific focus to deliver an effective public transport service for key workers.

"Reducing the number of trains in service creates opportunities for additional cleaning activities on trains, and in depots, and allows more targeted cleaning at stations.

"The service level will deliver more than enough seats to meet the current demand levels and the timetable will be kept under regular review to react to any further developments."

But for Glasgow Queen Street / Edinburgh - Inverness services, initially at least, the plan is to run to a broadly normal timetable, according to the website.

The first trains are:

0707 Glasgow Queen Street to Inverness

0648 Inverness to Edinburgh

The last trains are:

1806 Glasgow Queen Street to Inverness

1727 Inverness to Glasgow Queen Street

1853 Inverness to Edinburgh

There will be more details as soon as they become available to the Strathy
