Taylor Swift fans travelling from Glasgow to the capital for one of the popstar's eagerly-anticipated shows won't have to worry about getting home as ScotRail has them covered.

Thousands from all over the country will be flocking to Edinburgh next month as the star brings her record-breaking Eras tour to Scottish Gas Murrayfield stadium over three nights from Friday, June 7 to Sunday June 9.

It'll be the first time the American singer-songwriter will play at the venue, and, with thousands of Swifties expected each night, ScotRail is doing everything it can to help concert-goers travel to and from the event.

Customers will have more seats and trains to choose from. In addition, there will be additional late-night services to get fans home after the events.

Additional late-night services will operate from Edinburgh to Glasgow, Dundee, Dunblane, and Perth, with the last time a service will depart Edinburgh for Glasgow Queen Street at 12.12am.

Haymarket station, in Edinburgh, is also expected to be much busier than normal in the afternoon and early evening with gig-goers using the station.

ScotRail Customer Operations Director, Phil Campbell said: "It will be fantastic to see so many people travel to Scottish Gas Murrayfield stadium to see Taylor Swift, and ScotRail is delighted to be able to add more seats and extra late-night trains to help fans enjoy the occasion.

"We’re encouraging customers to plan ahead and allow extra time for travel to and from Edinburgh.

"Buying return tickets in advance on the ScotRail app or website will minimise your need to queue, and help your day run smoothly."

Customers travelling by train are encouraged to buy return tickets through the mTicket system on the ScotRail app, either from home or on the way to the station, where it will instantly become available on a mobile device and reduce the likelihood of queueing on the day of travel.

Customers are also reminded of engineering works on Sunday, 9 June, between Glasgow Central and Edinburgh via Shotts, where buses replace trains between West Calder and Glasgow Central, and journey times may take longer.

ScotRail will have extra staff on hand at key stations across the network to help customers, who are also reminded that the consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail services and in ScotRail stations.
