Furious commuters have vented their anger at Scotland's rail network, which has been suspended due to severe winds battering the country.
Network Rail said that debris on the lines and damage to equipment meant it was not safe to operate any services. Trains are being halted at their nearest stations and passengers are being advised to disembark.
It added all sorts of items had been blown on to tracks - including a trampoline.
"We've had a trampoline on the line, items of garden furniture, trees and other debris," a spokesman said.
"It's quite extensive."
But commuters called the wind "wee gusts" and have begun using the hashtag #scotfail.

Company spokesman Nick King said: "The weather conditions are such that we are having to bring the network to a standstill at the moment.
"There's too much debris and too much damage to equipment to continue. We cannot continue to run trains with the levels of wind we are seeing."
The rail company tweeted numerous pictures to commuters, of the debris on the lines.
