Glasgow has two main rail stations: Central and Queen Street. Central serves Virgin trains from London's Euston station (five hours), which come via Crewe and Carlisle in England. East Coast trains run from London’s Kings Cross to Glasgow's Queen Street station, which has frequent connections to Edinburgh. For details, contact National Rail.
A regular bus service links the Queen Street and Central stations (although you can easily walk if you aren't too encumbered). Queen Street is near the Buchanan Street subway station, and Central is close to St. Enoch. Taxis are available at both stations.
The Glasgow area has an extensive network of suburban railway services. Locals still call them the Blue Trains, even though most are now painted maroon and cream. For more information and a free map, contact the Strathclyde Passenger Transport Travel Centre or National.
