We know some people (including a few of the Play Full team) will be travelling from Edinburgh to Glasgow for our 1st Birthday event. We’ve heard that Scotrail have just announced disruptions on the route that day. https://www.scotrail.co.uk/about-scotrail/news-press-releases-latest-news-media-release/significant-disruption-scotrail
In case this impacts you, we’ve made a list of the alternative travel options below. These routes will be the same for the return journey from Glasgow to Edinburgh.
