More than £4,000 was raised by ScotRail by the Class 314 farewell tours that ran on December 18 (RAIL 895).
Rather than ticket sales, SR asked for passengers to make donations, with a minimum of £10 requested. These were sold on a first-come first-served basis. Throughout the day, SR also asked passengers for donations via the sale of commemorative pin badges, tickets and timetables.
Funds raised were donated to ScotRail’s charity partner MND Scotland, with £4,192.66 collected including £500 from the North Lanarkshire Schools Pipe Band, who donated their fee for performing on the day.
