HeraldScotland:

ScotRail has advised customers to consider postponing journeys until services return to normal.

ScotRail says it was to have two buses at Queen Street for 10am to help keep passengers moving towards Bishopbriggs, Lenzie, and Croy and then onto Falkirk Grahamston where they could connect into a train service.

They also were to lay on a bus at Falkirk High at the same time to operate a shuttle between there and Falkirk Grahamston.

COP26 delegates can use their travel pass on any bus service.

Services already cancelled included the 9.09am between Glasgow Queen Street and Dundee, the 9.15am, 9.45am and 10.45am services between Glasgow and Edinburgh, the 9.52am, 10.21am and 10.51am between Glasgow and Alloa, the 10.13am, 10.44am, 11.13am between Alloa and Glasgow and the 10.15am and 10.45am between Edinburgh and Glasgow.
