SCOTRAIL has issued a warning to concert-goers who wish to travel to see Ed Sheeran by train.

The company is urging everyone to plan their journeys and get to Hampden Park early as doors will open at 4pm on Thursday and Friday as the star brings his + - = ÷ x Tour.

In an effort to support the crowd, there will be extra carriages added to the services from Mount Florida and Kings Park to Glasgow Central, from 12pm.

Trains are also expected to be busier than usual.

After the gigs there will be no trains departing Mount Florida back to Glasgow Central due to the temporary timetable currently in place.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said: “We’ll be doing all we can to help customers get to the Ed Sheeran concerts at Hampden.

“We’re adding extra carriages to as many trains as we can; however, our services are expected to be very busy, so we’d encourage people to travel early if they can.

“Customers should be aware that there will be no trains from Mount Florida after the event finishes, so we urge everyone to plan ahead, check their journey, and consider their travel options.

"Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before event so please make sure you know where to go. ScotRail staff will be there to help and on hand to direct you.”

This comes as First Bus launched a Hampden service to support those travelling to Hampden.
