A new timetable is being introduced on the West Coast Main Line, providing almost 2,000 extra seats a day on trains for Glasgow.
From Monday 10th December, a train will run every hour with the introduction of two extra Glasgow services running in both directions.
"Overall passenger numbers have more than doubled on our routes. Demand for travel between Glasgow, Cumbria and London has grown steadily since the last big timetable improvement in 2008-9.
"The extra capacity from December will provide a great opportunity for even more passengers to enjoy the service."
