HELENSBURGH'S trains remain suspended on Wednesday - along with rail services across the whole of Scotland - as high winds from Storm Jocelyn lash the country.

ScotRail warned on Tuesday that there would be no services on any of its routes on Wednesday, January 24 until all lines have been checked for damage or other obstructions.

Those checks can only be carried out in daylight, which means they won't begin until 8.30am at the very earliest.

A yellow 'be aware' Met Office warning for strong winds is in place in Helensburgh and Lomond and across large parts of Scotland until 1pm on Wednesday - though for much of the west and north coast the warning has the more serious 'amber' status - meaning 'be prepared'.

It takes the disruption to train services into a fourth day, after Storm Jocelyn followed hard on the heels of Storm Isha, which had seen trains cancelled on Sunday night and for much of Monday.

There were no Helensburgh trains at all on Monday, and only a handful of services ran to or from Helensburgh Central station on Tuesday in a brief weather window of a few hours between the line being declared safe and the wind speeds reaching a point where it was deemed too risky to continue running services.




ScotRail had previously warned passengers there would be no trains after 7pm on Tuesday, but in the event the last departure from Helensburgh Central was at 12.55pm.

Even those trains which did run to or from the town's main railway station did so in a severely limited fashion, with none of them operating east of Dalmuir and passengers having to change there for a service towards Glasgow city centre.

Trains were able to run on the West Highland route via Helensburgh Upper - albeit with delays - on Tuesday morning, before the decision was taken during the afternoon to suspend all services in light of the worsening conditions.
