Fans of AYRSHIRE by former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher are the latest concert goers who will have a hard time coming home from concerts this weekend.
There were no trains from Mount Florida or Kings Park last week after Ed Sheeran’s performances at Hampden Park in Glasgow – and the same will apply to Gallagher’s concert at the same venue on Sunday, June 26th.
The lack of trains is the result of an ongoing dispute between ScotRail and the ASLEF drivers ’union, in which ASLEF members chose not to work overtime or on holidays.
Last month, ScotRail introduced a temporary schedule, and almost all evening trains were canceled.
This timetable has since been revised, with a small number of evening trains reintroduced – but there will be no evening services to bring fans back for a Sunday concert in downtown Glasgow or back home to Ayrshire.
A ScotRail spokesman said: “Our timetable on Sunday means there will be reduced hourly transport between Central Glasgow and Mount Florida and Kings Park, so please travel earlier if you can or consider alternative modes of transport.
“After the concert, there will be no trains from Mount Florida and Kings Park to central Glasgow or downtown due to the timetable.”
The ASLEF-ScotRail dispute is separate from the series in which there were no trains on Tuesday and Thursday this week in Ayrshire.
The dispute involved the RMT union on the one hand and Network Rail and 13 train companies across the UK – though not ScotRail – on the other, and there should be a third 24-hour strike by RMT members on Saturday, June 25th.
