TRAINS in parts of West Dunbartonshire have been suspended due to flooding as heavy rain sweeps across Scotland.

ScotRail says services on the Balloch-Airdrie and Helensburgh-Edinburgh routes are not able to run west of Dalmuir due to heavy rain flooding the railway at Bowling and Craigendoran.

In addition a broken down train at Drumchapel is disrupting services between Dalmuir and Hyndland via Singer, with trains diverted via Yoker instead.



The company says that an emergency timetable is being implemented on the North Clyde routes as a result of the flooding at Bowling, and that replacement buses are being requested, with further details to follow via Twitter.
