ScotRail announced train services between Glasgow Central and Ardrossan Harbour will be terminated at Kilwinning due to waves crashing onto the railway where the line runs close to water.


In one video posted by rail workers, electricity can be seen arcing from the overhead wires as the highly-conductive salt water slams against the tracks.
