Response

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government only holds some of the information you have requested, as some of the detail is not required to be provided by ScotRail under the terms of the franchise agreement.

ScotRail provide cancellation information at Sector Level however this does not include details on the date and time of individual trains or station of origin. The Glasgow to Edinburgh via Falkirk High service is reported as an individual sector (Express Sector E&G) therefore some of the information you have requested relating to all train cancellations is held.
