Reply To: First Class Rail Review – Transpennine/Scotrail

Back to Forum


I certainly got what I paid for on this trip – disappointed with Scotrail, I did expect a coffee if nothing else though.
I have travelled Aberdeen/York in the past during the week with the full catering/alcohol service and have found on occasion that the First fare has only been about £6 higher than Standard which surprised me.
Also, one thing I heard the stewardess on the Transpennine say is that the catering is better during the week with sandwiches etc, so certainly worth thinking about if travelling Manchester to Glasgow or Edinburgh at a tad over 3 hours journey time.
