New cycle carriages for the West Highland Line

We received the great news that Scotrail is introducing new designated carriages for up to 20 bikes and large sporting equipment on one of Scotland’s most scenic routes, the West Highland Line.

As part of the pilot, ScotRail is transforming five Class 153 trains which are due for delivery in 2020 and will be gradually rolled into service on the completion of staff training.

This will be a great opportunity to access the Wild About Argyll Trail in Oban, but also to give our West Highland Rover route a go, as the trains will be servicing Fort William, Mallaig and Oban.

  1. Great news! Hope it’s not a disappointment, but the pictures look very promising indeed.

  2. Looks luxurious and crazily spacious – a long way from the old baggage car on the night train (which had a unique atmosphere) – I hope it’s easy to clean for bike packers after a week in the wilds!
