No trains to city centre after Gerry Cinnamon concerts as temporary timetable remains
CONCERT goers will be unable to get a train to Glasgow city centre after Gerry Cinnamon's Hampden gigs.
The Glaswegian singer-songwriter will perform at the stadium on Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17 to crowds of thousands.
But ScotRail has advised those travelling by train that despite union workers accepting a pay deal, the temporary timetable will remain in place this weekend.
Rail bosses are urging customers to plan ahead and consider travel options, as there will be no trains leaving Mount Florida station to Glasgow Central after the concert ends at 11pm.
Before the gig, a queuing system will be in place at Glasgow Central, and staff are planning to add extra carriages to trains to help people get there.

But there are a limited number of services after the gig finishes, with limited space, and no rail replacement will be offered.
What trains are running?
23:17 Glasgow Central to East Kilbride
23:21 Glasgow Central to Gourock
23:22 Glasgow Queen Street to Stirling
23:30 Glasgow Central to Ayr
23:45 Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley
Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said: “We’re pleased that ASLEF members have voted to accept our pay deal, however our temporary timetable will still be in place this weekend.
“We’re working hard to restore the timetable to normal as soon as possible, but in the meantime, we’re urging customers travelling to Hampden Park to see Gerry Cinnamon perform to plan ahead, to check their entire journey, and to know their travel options.
“There will be a very limited number of trains departing the city centre after the concert on Saturday night, and there will be no trains after the event on Sunday, so please check your entire journey and know what alternative transport is available.”
The temporary timetable has been in place since May 23, and on July 11 ASLEF members accepted a pay deal made by ScotRail.
The train operator said it is now working to resume the full timetable as soon as possible.
