Trains in the north and north-east of Scotland are facing significant disruption due to the adverse weather conditions, with a section of track in Aberdeenshire found to be flooded and an Inverness to London train cancelled.
Network Rail Scotland tweeted earlier this morning to say flooding had been found on the tracks between Dyce and Inverurie and between Elgin and Keith, leading the route between Aberdeen and Inverness to be closed.
The firm said local teams were assessing what needs to be done in the affected locations before they can be reopened.
Flooding between Elgin – Keith and also between Dyce – Inverurie means the Aberdeen – Inverness route remains closed. Follow @ScotRail for service information and alternative arrangements.
