Colin Smyth has welcomed new rail services between Dumfries and Carlisle but criticised ScotRail for failing to deliver on promises.
The South Scotland MSP claims ScotRail failed to deliver the full improvements to the Nith Valley rail line.
The improvements are said to have been promised by new franchise owners Abellio, when they were awarded the franchise in 2014.
The local MSP says he is disappointed that there is only one extra train from Dumfries to Glasgow in the new planned timetable.
He adds that there are no further planned extra services for passengers travelling north of Dumfries, despite pledges of additional services.
These include a commitment to end two three-hour gaps that exist between services travelling in each direction.
He claims a promised ‘bike hire’ scheme at Dumfries station has also failed to materialise.
