Three trains between Aberdeen and the central belt have been cancelled due to a lack of train crew.
ScotRail announced that today’s 9.04am service between Aberdeen and Edinburgh has been axed.
Requests have been made by the firm to source a replacement bus service, which could delay commuters journeys by up to 30 minutes.
An earlier service to the capital, due to depart from the Granite City at 5.30am was also cancelled.
ScotRail has also cancelled one of its services more than 12 hours before it was due to depart, with the axing of the train to Glasgow Queen Street at 7.41pm.

All three cancellations have been caused by a “shortage of train crew”, according to the firm’s website.
The body, run by parent company Abellio, apologised for the cancellation, reminding passengers they can claim compensation if trains are delayed by more than 30 minutes, through its Delay Repay scheme.
