Rail services across Tayside and Fife have been hit due to “heavy” flooding on the tracks near Kinghorn.
A line closure is in place between the town and neighbouring Burntisland due to the deluge, which has led to a knock-on effect on services to Dundee, Angus and Perth.
A number of journeys have been delayed due to the flooding.
ScotRail posted: “Due to heavy rain flooding the railway between Burntisland and Kinghorn the line towards Kirkcaldy is closed. Disruption is expected until 6pm (on) 05/10.
“Train services between Edinburgh and Perth will be revised.”
UPDATE: We've been advised by @NetworkRailScot that it's not possible to reopen the southbound line at Kinghorn just now.
Our 1403 Edinburgh to Arbroath service is going to head back to Burntisland station. We're arranging alternative transport for customers onboard. ^Angus
