RAIL bosses are putting themselves on the right track to help connect passengers with the wider world.

Wi-Fi is set to be introduced on ScotRail trains, including those that travel on the Inverness to Aberdeen line.

The move has been welcomed by Fraser Grieve, the Highlands and Islands manager for the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI).

He said: "The roll-out of Wi-Fi on trains serving the Highland mainline and the Inverness to Aberdeen services will be of great benefit to both business and leisure customers, and I am delighted to see this investment coming forward.

"In a survey of businesses carried out earlier this year by SCDI, we found Wi-Fi was the highest priority for productive working on trains and was seen as a key priority for rail service improvements and one that would attract greater use of our railways."

The changes are expected to be in place by the end of 2013.
