The country’s railways are the envy of the world, but they’re not the only thing they’re good at delivering.
The country is well on its way to delivering the highest average value per passenger (AVP) per kilometre of journey in the world.
While other nations can boast an average of more than $500 per km, Scotland can boast a figure of just under $1,200.
In comparison, Singapore has an average value of just over $500.
In other words, there’s no real shortage of trains in Scotland.
The railway industry is in a constant state of growth, and the number of trains running every day in Scotland is growing.
In the first half of 2017, there were more than 15 million passenger journeys in Scotland, a rise of nearly 60 per cent on the same period last year.
Scotland has an enviable railway infrastructure, but there are plenty of reasons to be proud of what it has to offer.
