Wemyss Bay Station was bathed in blue to show support for key workers and front-line NHS staff fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

A number of Network Rail stations and structures were illuminated in NHS colours to show solidarity with workers across the UK.

The station is highly regarded and features in many lists of the UK’s favourite stations, and also starred in the 2017 Vodafone Christmas advert starring Martin Freeman.

Wemyss Bay was illuminated from 8pm as people across the country joined in the Clap for Carers, to thank NHS and other front-line staff for the work they are doing during the pandemic.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of ScotRail said: “We are delighted to illuminate what many consider to be one of Scotland’s most iconic stations as a symbol of public support for the vital and fantastic work of NHS staff who are tackling the coronavirus.

Stuart McMillan, MSP for Greenock & Inverclyde said: “We are hugely grateful to all the staff at Inverclyde Royal Hospital and NHS staff and key workers across the area and beyond for their efforts in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This of course includes key workers from Inverclyde Council who are at the forefront of supporting vulnerable individuals and serving and supporting the community in so many different ways at this difficult time.

“Lighting the station blue is a great way to show support for everyone in the fight against COVID-19 and we are grateful to Network Rail for taking forward this activity at the iconic Wemyss Bay station – which will provide a fantastic back-drop.”
