Intruder online disrupts trains
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.’’
