Scotrail have invested in a simulator to help their drivers understand the difficulties they face each day of the autumn months due to wet leaves sticking to the train lines.

The simulator is designed to re-enact the devastating effect the wet leaves can have on train lines. Fingers crossed this autumn and winter not too many travel destinations will be affected by bad weather on the roads or other transport methods.
