As reported in the Journal and Gazette last week, commuters were left stranded on the platform at Dalmeny after recent storm damage to carriages forced ScotRail to run with only a three carriage train on its busy 7.58am service to Edinburgh.
The three carriages at 7.58am were still running earlier this week but the rail operator re-scheduled a Perth/Edinburgh train to make a stop at Dalmeny to pick up any commuters left on the platform. However, the Perth train did not stop at the South Gyle station, alienating some commuters. While the Perth train has helped alleviate the problem, commuters were still having to wait minutes more in order to get to their work.
ScotRail said it was working as quickly as possible to return the service to normal after the storms and from last Thursday a six carriage train, as promised, was provided on the 7.58am service.
