A broken-down train is causing disruption to rail services from Dundee to Aberdeen this morning.
National Rail reported that the stricken sleeper train had closed the northbound line at Arbroath.
A spokesman said: “A broken down train at Arbroath is causing disruption to journeys between Dundee and Aberdeen.
“This is expected to continue until 10am. Trains are currently unable to run from Dundee towards Aberdeen.”
@ScotRail all trains running north from Dundee have been cancelled due to sleeper train falling asleep !!!!

Scotrail said a replacement bus service was being set up for ticket holders heading north, but that customers “may want to make their own arrangements.”
It’s expected that the buses will run from around 8am.
@ScotRail my trains cancelled, would you pay my taxi to work from Montrose to stonehaven, I have no way of getting to work…
