Trains are traveling slowly due to snow on the lines as wintry weather sweeps across the Highlands, Moray and parts of Aberdeenshire.
At three locations on the West Highland railway line speed restrictions have been imposed due to an “extreme weather forecast”.
A message on Twitter posted by a spokeswoman for Network Rail said: “Due to adverse and extreme weather forecast, speed restrictions have been imposed over the following:
- Glenfinnan to Lochailort until 11.15am
- Oban Line Falls of Cruachan to Taynuilt until 1pm
- Ardlui to Crianlarich until 2.45pm.”
❄️ With the wintry weather overnight, we've been out patrolling the #WestHighlandLine to check for any issues.
The @westcoastrail engine being used has miniature ploughs attached, meaning it can clear small to medium sized drifts.
