Have we got GOOD news for you? No!

Today the nation's editors and their deputies travel to Glasgow for the annual bun-fight that is the Society of Editors National Conference.

The society's 400 members will be welcomed to Glasgow tonight by no less a figure than Alex Salmond, after which the owner of the Evening Standard and Independent, Alexander Lebedev, will give the keynote speech.

The event which is running from the 14th to the 16th of November is taking place at the Grand Central Hotel at the city's Central station.

What a marvelous opportunity for the railway to show all those uber-hacks from 'Fleet Street' exactly what it can do as it speeds them to Scotland's second city!

Sadly not.

This from Virgin's website:

Until 1500, train services will operate between Warrington Bank Quay and London Euston, and between Preston and Scotland.

Rail replacement coaches will operate between;

Warrington Bank Quay and Preston

Good to see that the industry's PR's have their fingers on the pulse!
