Train services were delayed after a cow was spotted walking down the tracks.

The animal made its way along the route on the Milngavie line.

A social media user posted a photo of the cow at Hillfoot Station in Bearsden.

In an update posted shortly after 10am on Thursday, ScotRail confirmed that the animal had been moved from the line.

In June, a calf was spotted “waiting on the next train” in Glasgow.

The animal was captured by ScotRail’s CCTV standing in the outdoor shelter of Pollokshaws West station on Monday evening.

The images of the odd sight were uploaded to ScotRail’s Twitter account as the animal waited for “the next train to Cowdenbeef”.

Clare, a CCTV operator for Scotrail, said the cow-muter “came in, ate some plants, had a wee wander, licked his reflection in the shelter and made his way back to the field”.

Network Rail later confirmed that staff had attended the area and secured the fence to ensure the cow was safe.

Earlier in June, train services were suspended after a wayward bull wandered onto the tracks between Bishopton and Paisley St James.

Services between Gourock, Wemyss Bay, and Glasgow Central were suspended from around 8.45pm as Network Rail and British Transport Police officers attempted to remove the rogue animal.
