Extra train services for Festival

THE extra late-night services to North Berwick from the Edinburgh Festival are being repeated this year, ScotRail announced last week.

They will depart Edinburgh Waverley at 23.50 on Fridays from August 12 to 26 and 23:52 on Saturday nights from August 6 to 27 inclusive.

The trains will call at Musselburgh, Wallyford, Prestonpans, Longniddry and Drem and there will be onward bus connections from Drem to Dunbar with regard to these extra trains - as well as from the 21.44 Friday night service.

Customers travelling to and from the festival will also benefit from more carriages on many existing services.
