In a separate announcement, the government has said a new group is to co-ordinate efforts to improve services on the Highlands' Far North Line which connects Inverness to Wick and Thurso.

In the Central Belt, where passenger numbers are concentrated, the situation has been less happy with much criticism of ScotlRail's performance. Season ticket holders may get a free week of travel as compensation under a government scheme.


Since 2015 ScotRail has been operated by Abellio, a company headquartered in the Netherlands.
