MORE trains and extra carriages will run this weekend for rugby fans travelling to Scotland’s Six Nations clash with France.

Scotland host France at Murrayfield at 3.00pm on Sunday, and ScotRail have announced additional carriages to key services to and from Edinburgh including on the Fife Circle.

Supporters heading to the game are advised to allow additional time for travel with queuing systems in place at Haymarket after the final whistle.

Graham Heald, ScotRail Alliance Head of Customer Experience, said: “The Six Nations is one of the big sporting highlights of the year, and the ScotRail Alliance is pleased to help make things run smoothly. We are providing extra seats on key routes into Edinburgh and will be using all available trains on the day.

“Customers are advised to allow extra time for travel, and to buy their ticket in advance, not on the day.

“For customers travelling with children, our Kids Go Free tickets are the perfect fit – they allow up to two children, aged 5-15, to travel free with each adult.”

Alcohol bans will be in force.
