Reduced service through Ayr until further notice

Earlier this year, South Ayrshire Council enforced an exclusion zone at Ayr station. This was because the privately-owned former Station Hotel has been deemed unsafe.

While Ayr station remains open for business, the exclusion zone means that some changes have been made to services to and from Ayr, including the cancellation of some services between Ayr and Stranraer.

A limited number of ScotRail services between Ayr and Stranraer have now been reintroduced, following work by Network Rail engineers, including a safety risk assessment and some changes to the railway infrastructure. While this hasn't restored all services, it is a significant improvement for customers.

A reduced service will remain in operation until further notice.

Amended Off-Peak timetable on some Southeastern metro routes until Friday 16 November

50 million leaves fall onto the train tracks every autumn. When mixed with rain and squashed by train wheels, they form a slippery layer on the rails like black ice.

On days or weeks when rails are most slippery, Southeastern introduce a different timetable on some routes. Drivers need more time to stop and start the trains as the wheels have less grip on the tracks. These timetable changes give them the extra time they need to drive the trains safely.

The leaf-fall is expected to be most significant over the coming days; and as such, Southeastern will be running a revised Off-Peak metro timetable until Friday 16 November.

You can find more information on the amended timetable here.
