Waverley’s costly legacy

WAVErLEY station is suffering from an “elaborate” legacy of privatisation which has led to money being wasted, it has been claimed.

Network Rail route manager for Scotland, David Simpson, told MSPs that the firm was looking to restore “common sense”.

He said: “There are two first-class lounges, three customer receptions, five different sets of uniforms and all of those companies sub-lease parts of the station. That can’t be the most efficient answer.”
