First ScotRail Stations
The majority of Scotland's 340 passenger stations were operated by First ScotRail under Network Rail ownership. Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Central stations were operated by Network Rail itself; Glasgow Prestwick Airport station was owned and operated by the airport; and Dunbar was operated by the InterCity East Coast franchise holder (originally GNER, then National Express East Coast, then East Coast, and finally Virgin Trains East Coast). ScotRail operated Lockerbie station although none of its services called there.
First ScotRail Depots
First ScotRail's fleet was maintained at Edinburgh Haymarket, Glasgow Shields Road, Corkerhill and Inverness depots. In early 2005 the rebuilt Glasgow Eastfield reopened.
First ScotRail Demise
  • In June 2012, the Scottish Government announced that when the ScotRail franchise was re-tendered in 2014, the Caledonian Sleeper services would be transferred to a standalone franchise. In May 2014, it was announced that this new franchise had been awarded to Serco.
  • In October 2014, it was announced that FirstGroup had been unsuccessful in its bid to retain the ScotRail franchise, and that Abellio would take it over from April 2015.
The franchise duly passed to Abellio ScotRail at midnight on 1 April 2015. The Caledonian Sleeper services transferred to Serco several hours beforehand, during the evening of 31 March 2015.
