"Ayrline electrification is an £84m commitment by Strathclyde to rail services in Ayrshire"... "Our support for the Strathclyde Transport rail network depends on continuing improvements to give better value for money and improved customer service. The new trains should bring passengers back at a time when with bus deregulation almost upon us, it is even more important to provide frequency and reliability. I am sure all of us look forward to sampling Ayrline."
