Rail Service Frustration

RAIL services in Wigtownshire were brought to a standstill on Monday morning when the signal box at Barrhill was left unattended.

Passengers on the 7.09 am service from Stranraer to Glasgow were left frustrated after their train came to a halt shortly before 7.30 am when the driver discovered the signal box was closed.

The double carriage service about-turned and was brought back to Stranraer while a signalman was sought.

The 07.13 am service from Glasgow to Stranraer was delayed for an hour at Girvan.

Railway operators ScotRail arranged for buses to transport their passengers heading north. A spokesman said:

"There was a problem with the signal-box at Barrhill which, for some reason, had not been opened first thing this morning."
