ScotRail have said buses have been arranged to run between Edinburgh and North Berwick.

Buses will replace trains between Edinburgh and North Berwick for the rest of the day. They'll leave at 30 mins past the hour from each end of the line. Travellers should be aware that the last bus from Edinburgh at is at 4.40pm last one from North Berwick is 5.30pm

This comes as many trains have come to a halt this week as Network Rail staff are taking industrial action. Network Rail staff include signallers. Services will be affected until Saturday. ScotRail have warned that even on non-strike days, they will be running the revised timetable due to the complexities of opening and closing signal boxes.

ScotRail are not associated with this strike but the knock-on-effect has meant only a limited amount of trains can run this week.

The strike comes after the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) rejected Network Rail's latest pay deal following a lengthy dispute over salary, working conditions and jobs. As the inflation rate has hit double figures, RMT want to see a better pay deal while Network Rail offered a 4 per cent rise this year and another 4 per cent increase for next year.
