Commuter train services between Glasgow and Edinburgh are at a standstill due to track flooding problems.

Up to 50 services running till midday have already been scrapped with the vast majority running between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Also affected are services between Dunblane, Alloa and Cowdenbeath and the capital.

It comes after heavy rain has flooded the railway between Linlithgow and Haymarket, with part said to be still sitting under two feet of water.

The development comes as rail campaigners questioned Scotland's rail resilience after services were left in chaos following flooding in the Highlands.

ScotRail said that due to the flooding in the areas "all lines are closed" with disruption expected until noon.

The train operator said it means that services between Glasgow Queen Street and Edinburgh will only go as far as Linlithgow.

"Staff are on-site attempting to clear the flooding and will advise when it is safe to run trains again," said ScotRail.

"Customers should be advised that due to extremely limited replacement transport that they should make alternative arrangements where possible."

Commuters are being told they can travel on services between Glasgow Queen Street low level and Edinburgh via Airdrie and Glasgow Central to Edinburgh via Shotts but journeys may be longer.

The railway including the Winchburgh Tunnel has been flooded between Linlithgow and Edinburgh.

Train services between Glasgow Queen Street and Edinburgh via Falkirk Grahamston and Cumbernauld will halt at Falkirk Grahamston.

Train services between Dunblane and Edinburgh will also halt at Falkirk Grahamston.

The development comes as the central belt becomes especially busy with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival being held throughout the month.

Meanwhile disruption is continuing to be felt in the Highlands with miles of track have becoming submerged or washed away near Inverness, Carrbridge, Ardlui, Crianlarich and Oban.

On Tuesday night it emerged that 10 metres of the world famous West Highland Line have been swept away and there has been warnings the section between between Ardlui and Crianlarich and between Crianlarich and Oban will be shut for close to a week.
