Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE - Chris Marzella

Train ser­vices be­tween Stir­ling and Glas­gow were last week­end thrown into chaos.

Pas­sen­gers on Satur­day evening were faced with can­cel­la­tions and de­lays after a per­son was spot­ted on the line be­tween Lar­bert and Stir­ling.

Ser­vices be­tween Glas­gow Queen Street and Dun­blane and Ed­in­burgh and Dun­blane, as well as Glas­gow Queen Street and Al­loa, Glas­gow Queen Street and Aberdeen and Ed­in­burgh and Al­loa, where ei­ther de­layed or can­celled be­tween 7.15pm and 10.45pm.

ScotRail or­gan­ised re­place­ment buses and ar­ranged for cus­tomers with valid train tick­ets to travel on First Buses be­tween Stir­ling and Ed­in­burgh and with Stage­coach East Scot­land Buses be­tween Stir­ling and Dun­blane.

A ScotRail spokesper­son warned of the dan­gers of tres­pass­ing on the line and added: “We worked closely with the emer­gency ser­vices to re­turn ser­vices to nor­mal as quickly as pos­si­ble. Cus­tomers who were de­layed by 30 min­utes or more are re­minded to keep their tick­ets to claim com­pen­sa­tion.’’
