RUGBY fans in Fife making their way to Edinburgh this weekend will have more seats on the train to choose from.

ScotRail are running extra carriages on the Fife Circle line this Saturday as Scotland face England in the Six Nations at Murrayfield.

Trains are expected to be very busy as supporters head for the match which starts at 4.45pm.

Fans attending the game are advised to allow additional time for travel, with queuing systems in place at Haymarket after the full-time whistle.

To help everyone’s journey go smoothly, extra staff and signs will be in place to direct customers, and map showing which queue to join is also available online.

As with most large events, alcohol bans will be in place.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said: "Scotland v England in the Six Nations is one of the biggest games in the rugby calendar, and we will be doing all we can to make things run smoothly.

“Although we can’t make every train longer, we will be using every train we have on the day.

“If you’re going to Murrayfield, please allow extra time for travel, and buy your ticket in advance, not on the day.

“The last trains of the day will be very busy, so please aim for an earlier service to avoid disappointment.”
