ScotRail trains between Inverness and Edinburgh are being delayed due to a signalling fault.
ScotRail trains between Inverness and Edinburgh are being delayed due to a signalling fault.

ScotRail trains will face delays of up to 20 minutes on all services travelling between Carrbridge and Inverness today.

The rail firm made the announcement this morning to warn travellers about the reduced speed limits on the line which connects the Highland capital to the central belt through Aviemore.

It comes on the same day that ScotRail hoped to return to May 2022 service levels following months of disruption.

The train operator is supposed to be bringing back 700 daily services.

The move comes after after members of the drivers’ union ASLEF voted to accept an improved pay offer ending a dispute.

The temporary timetable had been introduced due to the impact of a significant number of drivers declining to make themselves available for overtime or rest day working.

The stance caused widespread disruption across the Highlands due to a heavily reduced number of services.

Like many train operators across the UK, ScotRail said it relied on drivers working overtime or on their rest days.

Meanwhile extreme temperatures have also caused problems on the rail network.

ScotRail have updated timetables in recent days for the reintroduction of more services.
