The rail operator said in a tweet that a Network Rail team of engineers were sent to work on the fault between Dalgety Bay and Burntisland.

The company's latest tweet says the signalling system is back up and operating normally, adding: "Team now working to conclude the special arrangements in place to keep services running, once this is done, we’ll be able to begin restoring the normal timetable."
