Changes to trains between Stirling and Alloa

We’re building the best railway Scotland’s ever had - to bring you more seats, faster journeys, and better services.

Work is ongoing to electrify the routes to Stirling, Alloa and Dunblane as part of the Scottish Government’s rolling programme of rail electrification. The next stage of this is the line between Stirling and Alloa, which will be closed from Saturday, 17 March to Sunday, 15 April.

Engineers will be installing masts and overhead power lines for electric trains. It’s not possible for us to run any trains while this work is underway.

All services between Glasgow/Edinburgh and Alloa will start and terminate at Stirling. Replacement buses to/from Alloa will connect with these services.

Please leave extra time for travel, and plan your journey in advance.
