ScotRail resumes services to Ayr and Stranraer after Troon station fire

Last updated: Thursday, 22 July 2021

ScotRail’s Glasgow Central to Ayr services will resume again from tomorrow, Friday, 23 July.

And, services between Ayr and Stranraer, which were also affected by the disruption caused by the fire, are expected to run normally from mid-morning tomorrow.

It comes less than a week after fire badly damaged station buildings at Troon, causing trains to terminate at Kilwinning.

There will be some cancellations due to the disruption caused by the blaze and Troon station itself will remain closed until at least Monday, 26 July. A shuttle bus service will serve Troon between Irvine/Kilmarnock and Prestwick Town on Friday and Saturday.

Due to continuing strike action by RMT union members there will be a reduced service between Glasgow and Ayr on Sunday, 25 July in line with previous strike days and Troon will not be served by rail replacement.

ScotRail is advising customers to check their journey before they travel, buy their ticket before boarding the train and consult the train operator’s social media channels for up to date information.

There will be a further update as soon as there is more news about the reopening of Troon station.
