Dundee engineering train derailment

Due to an engineering train derailment near Dundee on Monday 28 September, services between Aberdeen and Glasgow Queen Street/Edinburgh will be disrupted until Thursday 1 October.

Trains from Edinburgh and Queen Street to Aberdeen are terminating at Dundee, and services from Aberdeen to Edinburgh and Queen Street terminate at Carnoustie.

Replacement buses are transporting passengers between Dundee and Carnoustie, but journey times are extended and we’re asking our customers to be prepared for slightly longer journeys.

To make things slightly easier for passengers, mutual ticket acceptance is in place on both Virgin East Coast and Cross Country trains.

The train derailed at around 2.20am on Monday morning, and our engineers are currently working on site to get the train and wagons back on the rails, and then to repair the damage to the tracks. Nobody was injured in the incident.

We’re really sorry about the inconvenience this will cause our customers, and assure you we are working as hard as we can to reopen the line and resume normal service.

If this disruption has caused you to be delayed, please take advantage of our Delay Repay Guarantee.
