The Fort William-London Euston Caledonian Sleeper service has been cancelled, at least until 24th March, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The situation changes frequently and in additional there is the prospect of industrial action to add to the usual Christmas and New Year service changes. Please consult this Caledonian Sleeper Service Alteration page for the current status.
The West Highland sleeper now utilises modern, state-of-the-art Mk 5 rolling stock, introduced last year. Recent months have seen it double-headed by pairs of GB Railfreight-owned Class 73s; now seemingly standard practice.
Travellers should check Serco Caledonian Sleeper’s website www.sleeper.scot for the latest updates and for more detail about the aforementioned changes. Covid-19 restrictions are subject to change at very short notice; hence services could be altered further in the weeks to come. As with all West Highland Line services, the public are advised not to travel by train unless the journey is essential.
