From a local point of view....
White Elephant.
The consultation process on this was bypassed the local community by en large.
No one i know wanted the return of this line except the cooncillors so they could flap their arms and get photo's done on launch day.
In fact if they had listened to the community as they are supposed to they would have found out the communities they are elected to represent are more annoyed at the loss of the cycle track than the return of the train.
Yes you will be able on completion to go all the way to Waverley but who the hell wants to terminate in Airdrie going the other way ?
This had the opportunity to be something special if they had took the time to join 2 cities together in a nutshell they could have saved a shed load of cash for the proposed hi speed link.
Even the work force has been out sourced...
Go figure

So, it'll go from Edinburger to Airdrie and then just stop? No line through to Glasgow? Seems a bit daft.

Anywhere online have proposed route maps?

No, the trains are scheduled to run from Edinburgh to Helensburgh.

That is the plan. I've heard the proposals are to run a fast and slow (all stopper) service from Helensburgh Central to the captial each hour. Like most timetables for new railway projects that have jus tbeen complete we will not know where services will start from and the frequency until around a few weeks prior to the line opening for the first time thus for the Airdrie - Bathgate line opening in December 2010

I stand corrected and am grateful the error of my ways was pointed out.
So who will be the new Dr Richard Beeching To axe this again ?
Then there will no doubt be compensation claims from all the households who for 50 years have never heard a train let alone have one knock the wally dugs aff the mantlepiece.
