ScotRail has announced alterations to its journey schedule in the north and east of Scotland today due to expected bad weather in the area.
The train firm said it would be imposing a blanket 40mph speed limit across the affected areas and reducing the frequency of its services ahead of a controlled shutdown of the network at around 7pm.
With an Amber weather warning from @MetOffice in place for the east and north of Scotland later today, we’ll reduce the frequency of services running in these areas from late afternoon, with a controlled shut down of the network around 19:00 tonight.
