TRAINS in and out of Inverclyde are off yet again.

ScotRail services are suspended until at least 6pm this evening after a vehicle hit the railway bridge on Sinclair Street.

One of the controversial old Class 314 trains currently in use on the Inverclyde line also broke down at Bishopton station causing further disruption.

Passengers on board the Glasgow Central to Gourock service were stranded for 40 minutes.

One irate commuter told the Tele: "The train broke down, there's no power.

"We've been told we're going nowhere and that they're going to have to get another train down to tow this one away.

"Passengers are stuck at Bishopton and the trains are cancelled for the time being.

"It's pathetic. These old trains really are heaps of junk."

ScotRail say services will be starting and terminating at Port Glasgow and the company is in talks with McGill's to allow valid train tickets to be accepted on buses between Gourock and the Port.

Officials are also advising passengers who have been delayed for 30 minutes or more to keep their tickets and claim a refund.

Train services had just got back to normal on Sunday having been off since Wednesday afternoon because of snow and ice.
