Trains between Glasgow Central and Stranraer / Ayr, and also between Girvan and Ayr

TOC(s) affected

Earlier this year, South Ayrshire Council enforced an exclusion zone at Ayr station. This was because the privately-owned former Station Hotel has been deemed unsafe.

Following work by Network Rail engineers, a limited number of ScotRail trains are running between Ayr and Stranraer. Works are continuing around the clock to complete the installation of the roof structure and place appropriate protective measures around the dangerous building.

The following service is in place at Ayr until further notice:

Stranraer - Barrhill - Girvan - Maybole - Ayr / Kilmarnock / Glasgow: Normal train service.

Girvan - Maybole - Ayr: These services are replaced by buses.

Ayr - Glasgow Central:  Trains have a reduced capacity because of the restrictions that have been applied by the council, as the platforms at Ayr station can only accommodate four-carriage trains. In order to provide the best possible service to customers along the route, a number of trains throughout the day will start and terminate at Prestwick Town. A replacement bus service will run between Ayr and Prestwick Town to connect with these services.

Ayr - Kilmarnock: Normal service, with a few exceptions.
