Glasgow to York by train

Disappointingly the direct journeys from Glasgow to York are still being impacted by the reduced timetables that were initially introduced in response to
the pandemic.
Only up to two direct trains per day are currently available, and these are the 06:48 train operated by LNER (not Sundays) and the 07:48 departure operated by CrossCountry.

If the timings of these trains don't suit the other journey options involve making a connection in Edinburgh - but if you take these journeys you will be departing from Glasgow Queen Street station and not from Glasgow Central.
