First Group loses rail franchise to Abellio
Scotland's railways will be in new hands from April 2015 with Dutch firm Abellio taking over the franchise.
Abellio will take over from Aberdeenshire-based First Group who have been in control of most of the country's rail infrastructure for the past decade.
A statement from the Dutch firm said it would invest heavily in services as well as pledging a better deal for Scotrail staff.
