The first electric trains will carry passengers between Edinburgh and Glasgow for the first time this weekend, months behind schedule.

Older Class 380 Hitachi trains will travel on the route from Sunday (10th Dec) because ScotRail's newer 385 models will not be ready until March.

ScotRail had expected the 385s, which produce 85% fewer harmful CO2 emissions than conventional trains, to enter service this autumn.
