Train services across the country will be suspended again on Tuesday evening as Storm Jocelyn grips the country.

Network Rail - the body that operates the railway lines - announced that all rail services in Scotland will be suspended at 7pm on Tuesday.

It follows major disruption on the rail network on Sunday and Monday as Storm Isha rolled in and battered the nation with heavy rain and strong winds.

Now, commuters will again be forced to make alternative plans with Network Rail saying Wednesday mornings rush hour service won't be in operation.

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.”

At Queen Street station, work continues to remove a fence that was blown over and is overhanging the railway.

Teams have also been working to remove a metal shed that was blown onto the line at Bellgrove and a garage roof that was blocking the line at Kirkwood as well as an advertising board that fell onto the line at the Exhibition Centre in Glasgow.
