Some of the oldest trains in Britain are running on one
of Scotland's most iconic routes, and could be harming
That's according to the UK Government's Office
The figures show that the Caledonian Sleeper,
which takes passengers from Scotland to London, has carriages which are,
But the operating company says improvements are just down the line.
The Caledonian sleeper service between Scotland and London has run
since at least 1900. The rolling stock has been updated since then,
of course, but with an average age of 41 years, it operates the oldest
carriages in Britain. Last Christmas, staff on the service took
strike action over what they described as train defects which
were a threat not just a comfort but to safety. Sir code, which took over
the franchise in 2015, has promised to introduce new trains in 2018,
demonstrating a prototype earlier this year. A spokesman told the BBC:
Meanwhile, figures show that ScotRail's average rolling stock
ages 20 years, making it slightly younger than the national average.
They too are undergoing a new modernisation programme. These
electric trains will soon take passengers between Edinburgh and
Glasgow. Virgin's fleet, with an average age of 30 years, says it
will begin using new trains in 2020. Women who binge drink are portrayed
more negatively by the media Researchers at Glasgow
and Glasgow Caledonian universities claim that news stories about women
drinking excessively are given more than double the amount of coverage
than men and are stigmatised. It is pictures like these

not as much as you have Images of women binge drinking
appear more often in the media, even though
men drink more. Things may happen on nights

the headlines? A picture of a guy lying gutter in a sweatshop, says it
all. A picture of a woman dressing up with someone holding her hair as
she vomits, that is a fantastic picture. This festive season,
perhaps the only way to avoid embarrassing pictures is to drink
responsibly, regardless of your gender.

Ambitious plans are underway to restore an historic Fife theatre
which has lain derelict for nearly two decades.
Work is taking place to transform the King's Theatre in Kirkcaldy
Following in the footsteps of generations of Fifers.
In '77, they did a massive refurbishment of this room.
Stephen Barber tries to bring back the glory days and even in this
dilapidated state, it is still possible
to imagine how grand this
There is a lot of work to be done, definitely. It is a three-year
project and we are taking our time, hoping to retain the essence of the
building and that we don't damage some of the really historical,
original stuff. Work on the theatre began in 1904, and it opened two
years later. The plans for the theatre were big news in Kirkaldy.

free press, with a couple of illustrations, one in particular
showing the grandeur of the auditorium. This grainy photograph
of the main stairway is one of the few images remaining which shows the
original grand interior of the building, but it closed in 2000 and
quickly fell into disrepair. Now, the vision is to create a 2000-
seater venue to attract touring bands. The stage is also big enough
West End- style shows. A restaurant, bar and function suites are also
part of the plan. The team it could transform the town. The idea and
concept is to have a unique landmark to bring people back into that. We
think that live entertainment would do that in the form of a place this
size. Right now, the priority is to get the roof back on to keep out the
rain and the pigeons. The hope is this theatre will be entertaining
generations to come. There were four games
in the Scottish Premiership tonight. Celtic stretched their lead
at the top of the table Partick Thistle beat Dundee 2-0,
and it was a 1-1 draw Lets get the weather. Christopher
has the forecast. It is breezy in the north-west,
meaning the temperatures shouldn't fall too far. South of the border,
much like last night, mist and fog forming. Some disruption likely if
you are travelling south of the border. Quite chilly here. For us,
not quite as cold because of the cloud cover in the breeze. Tomorrow
morning, a dry start. A touch of frost still holding on in some
places. Breezy on the West Coast with some rain in the Western Isles.
In the wins will be strong and south-westerly, gusting to gale
force later on. There will be brightness coming through, most
likely around Moray and the north-east. South of the border,
largely dry, but there could be stubborn mist and fog throughout the
day, holding the temperature back. In Northern Ireland and the far
south-west, 7-9 C. Similar for us in Scotland, perhaps 10 Celsius in any
brightness. Windiest in the far north-west, with rain moving in as
we head towards Friday. On Friday, the high-pressure slips away, but
that weather front will let its presence be felt. Fairly wet through
the far north-west over the course of the day. The rain moves to the
south. A cloudy day four of many, brighter in the east. Temperatures
perhaps into the teens. For Hogmanay, we expect rain to move
south through the course of the day, and by the bells, it should be south
of the border, leaving most areas dry. Behind it, cold air. The risk
of a few wintry showers at times. New Year really does personify
everything that's great about us. MUSIC: I'm Gonna Be
