Reviews and Additional Information

  1. Appreciated the service provided on Thursday evening during the chaos caused by weather conditions. Arrived from Stafford unaware of the issue and although the indicator boards were inactive there were extra staff to provide assistance.The frequent and repeated announcements over public address system ensured that everyone was regularly informed of the situation and departures.
    Ironically my service, Caledonian Sleeper arrived early and arrived in Inverness on time.
