Scotrail travel chaos as all Glasgow Queen street trains cancelled

Rail commuters in Glasgow are facing severe disruption this morning after engineering works overrun.

All trains out of Glasgow Queen Street high level are currently off due to a broken down rail road vehicle close to the station.

As a result services to and from Glasgow and Edinburgh are affected.

ScotRail has said some replacement buses are currently in operation and that a full service out of Queen Street should start again at 8am.

Services out of Glasgow Queen Street low level are not affected by the works.

In a tweet ScotRail said: “We are working to try and secure some diesel trains to operate a limited Glasgow – Edinburgh service via Springburn but this is not confirmed yet.”

It comes just a day after trains out of low level were cancelled and delayed after work on the line between Dalreoch and Dalmuir was not finished on time.

In a tweet ScotRail said: “We’re currently unable to operate trains in or out of #GlasgowQueenStreet High Level station due to engineering works not being finished on time.”

A Network Rail spokesman said: “Overnight, Network Rail engineers were carrying out work to the track and overhead line equipment at Cowlais.

“Shortly before 04.00, a piece of machinery broke down. Network Rail workers are currently working to remove the failed equipment.

“Due to the nature of the incident, no trains are currently able to run from the high-level platforms at Glasgow Queen Street railway station.

“Passengers are urged to check before they travel via National Rail Enquiries or with their train operator.

“We’d like to apologise for any disruption this incident is causing and thank passengers for their patience.”
