The stops at Haymarket and Edinburgh Waverley on the 07.52 and 09.52 from Aberdeen to London King’s Cross and the 07.55 from Inverness to London King’s Cross, will be for passengers to alight only. 


The stops at York, Darlington and Newcastle on the 10.00 and 14.00 from London King’s Cross to Aberdeen and the 12.00 from London King’s Cross to Inverness, will be for picking up passengers only.
