A major commuter rail line has reopened again this morning.
The Aberdeen to Dyce line has been closed since May as upgrades were made by Network Rail.
A bus replacement service had been transporting passengers for the duration of the works, however, the first trains ran through Dyce this morning, as the new line reopened.
It is part of the ambitious programme of works to double track the line between Aberdeen and Inverness – funded by the Scottish Government.
More than 12 miles of new rails have been laid and the signalling system has been upgraded during the 14-week closure.
Five bridges between Aberdeen and Dyce have been refurbished as part of the latest works.
Work has seen 1,640 concrete blocks weighing more than 5,000 tonnes installed along the railway line at Kittybrewster, Woodside, Bucksburn and Stoneywood.
Pleased to see the first train through #Dyce this morning ✅

More engineering work is to be carried out for the remainder of the year, including drainage works and the installation of fencing between August to December, plus two weeks of works to make the track more durable starting on Monday, August 27.
The railway line between Dyce and Inverurie is set to be doubled next year in August with a bus replacement service to be in place again.
