Only a fraction of ScotRail trains will run on Wednesday 27th July  as Network Rail staff walk out during the first of three planned strike days.

Just five routes in the central belt will continue to operate between 7.30am and 6.30pm, ScotRail has said, while workers are set to picket stations.

Disruption the evening before on Tuesday and the morning after on Thursday, due to the closing and reopening of signal boxes at different times across the country.

Network Rail Scotland signallers and maintenance staff, who are in safety-critical roles, will take industrial action on July 27, and August 18 and 20.

The only routes that will run on Wednesday are:

Edinburgh – Glasgow via Falkirk High: two trains per hour

Edinburgh – Bathgate: two trains per hour

Edinburgh – Glasgow via Shotts: one train per hour

Glasgow – Hamilton/Larkhall: two trains per hour

Glasgow – Lanark: two trains per hour

The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) in Scotland has confirmed pickets for Wednesday at Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow Central and Aberdeen.
