Conor says

If you have not already done so, please let me know if you are coming and if you want to stay for dinner. At some point, I will need to book, and they tend to want a number. If you have dietary restrictions, please let me know: I'll try to expedite matters by ordering "some food", but it helps to know how that should break down.

Once again, if you are thinking of getting the Caledonian Sleeper to Glasgow on the Tuesday night, please let me know (and tell me if you are willing to be contacted by other Sleeper travellers): I shall endeavour to meet you when your train arrives and conduct you to a place of coffee and breakfast (dietary information would also help here).

I'm expecting that some people will arrive on Tuesday and be up for food and drink. Let me know if you want to hook up.
