Unreliable trains

Abellio, the new operator of ScotRail, says that the Class 158 trains are to be the mainstay for the new Borders railway, yet they are the least reliable members of the ScotRail fleet.

What reassurances can the new team at ScotRail give us that the Borders won’t be as prone to cancellation as other routes presently worked by Class 158s such as the Inverness/Wick and the Edinburgh/Shotts/Glasgow line?

Passengers evaporate from 
cancellation-prone routes.
