Train services to and from Helensburgh are being disrupted after an animal strayed on to the railway line in Glasgow.

ScotRail has announced that train services from Helensburgh to Edinburgh via Bathgate will be delayed or revised.

An animal was reported on the track near Easterhouse station in the east end of Glasgow.

While most of those who use Helensburgh's train services don't travel east of Glasgow city centre, the incident is having a knock-on effect on the stretch of railway to the west of the city.



ScotRail says a mobile operations manager is currently on-site and will request a line blockage to get the animal off the line.

It is expected that trains will be affected until 2.30pm, according to ScotRail's page on

This states that the 12.08pm service from Edinburgh to Helensburgh, due to reach Helensburgh Central at 2.15pm, is running 10 minutes late.

The 1.55pm departure from Helensburgh Central is also affected by the disruption and won't run east of Hyndland.

Services between Balloch and Airdrie may also be delayed or revised.
