No train services are expected to run from Ayr over the next few days as firefighters continue to battle a blaze at the Station Hotel.
Network Rail confirmed engineers remain at the scene after the historical building caught fire on Monday.
Two teens, aged 17 and 13, have been arrested and charged in connection with the incident – the second time the hotel has been set alight this year.
ScotRail is running a replacement bus service for those affected by disruption. Engineers are due to assess when it will be safe for the station to reopen.
Firefighters are still fighting the blaze. Network Rail said that initial indications are that its engineers won’t be able to access the area for at least 36 hours to assess the damage to the railway.
Train services between Glasgow Central and Ayr will terminate and start back from Irvine and services between Stranraer and Ayr will terminate and start back from Girvan.
Passengers are being advised to check their journey with ScotRail for the latest advice and alternative transport arrangements.
Liam Sumpter, route director, Network Rail Scotland said: “Our team is on-site at Ayr station and working with the emergency services, including the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, who are still fighting the hotel fire.
“It’s a developing situation and unfortunately, no trains will run while we assess when the station can re-open.”
