Ten years since Alloa branch opened

ScotRail marked ten years since the Alloa line reopened on 15 May. Passenger services on the route were restored on that date in 2008 with a special steam train service along the line. Scheduled ScotRail services began on 19 May 2008.

It was initially estimated that 150,000 customers would use the line each year, however, over 300,000 people travelled on the line last year.

The line has just been electrified as part of a project to introduce electric trains across Scotland.
