Inverness - Central Belt train times "could be cut"

Two reports indicate that with an investment in new rolling-stock and GBP55m on other improvements, the journey from Inverness to Glasgow or Edinburgh could be cut by around 45 minutes, to give a journey time of about 2 hours 45 minutes, with additional work in Fife potentially bringing the journey time to Edinburgh down to 2 hours 30 minutes, allowing the rail network to compete better against road travel; for many regular travellers it is certainly an attractive prospect. The improvements would also benefit travellers to Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth and the north-east.
