RAIL Services remain halted in Fife with additional disruption to services on the way tomorrow (Tuesday) evening ahead of Storm Jocelyn's arrival.

Although some services in Scotland have got back on the track in the wake of Storm Isha, trains have not ran in Central Fife since they were halted yesterday evening.

Network Rail say that an early shutdown of the train network will take place on Tuesday as the country braces itself for Storm Jocelyn.

With winds of up to 65mph to hit Scotland tomorrow night, the decision has been taken to close the network early on Tuesday with a controlled shutdown of services starting from 7pm.

Services will also start later on Wednesday as engineers will need to inspect railway lines for damage before trains can run.

Chainsaw teams and specialist overhead line engineers from Network Rail have been working flat out today (Monday) to clear trees and repair damaged power lines on multiple routes.

Some routes have been inspected and reopened for train operators over the course of today. These include the East Coast Mainline, the West Coast Mainline and Dundee to Edinburgh via Kirkcaldy.

Network Rail says engineers are still working to tackle significant issues on various lines where falling trees have damaged the overhead line equipment used to power electric trains.

Liam Sumpter, route director, Network Rail Scotland, said: “Storm Isha has caused a huge amount of damage across Scotland’s Railway.

“My thanks go to our teams, who’ve been working around-the-clock to remove fallen trees and debris while carrying out both minor and major repairs to damaged infrastructure.

“While we are continuing to re-open routes when it is safe to do so, we unfortunately expect even more disruption in the coming days as Storm Jocelyn arrives in Scotland.

“If you’re planning on travelling by train this week, please check the status of your journey with your train operator.

“We’re also urging lineside neighbours to make sure that garden furniture and equipment is secure as in high winds, this can blow on to the railway, causing damage and disruption.”

ScotRail have confirmed line closures will continue into Wednesday with each route having to undergo a safety inspection before trains are able to operate.

Customers whose journey has been cancelled or disrupted due to adverse weather can travel two days after the date on their ticket, or also apply for a refund on any unused tickets.

Customer are advised to check the ScotRail website or app before travelling tomorrow and Wednesday.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Customer Operations Director, added: “The heavy wind and ongoing rain hitting most parts of the country mean that it will not be safe for our customers and our staff, and all ScotRail train services will be suspended from 7pm tomorrow.

“This is the second withdrawal of train services this week, and we know the impact this has on customers, but the safety of staff and passengers will always be our priority.

“Our colleagues at Network Rail Scotland will again be working flat out to carry out safety checks, and assess what repairs are required to reopen the railway.

“However, customers will be unable to travel early on Wednesday morning, as trains will not be able to operate until the infrastructure has been made safe.

“We will update our website, mobile app, and social media feeds when we have more information, and customers should check for the latest updates before they attempt to travel.”
