Derailed HST (John Cummings Twitter)

A derailment on the Highland Main Line is expected to keep the line out of action until at least Thursday (14 April). The route, which connects the north of Scotland with the rest of the UK, has been blocked since a test train came off the rails in the early hours of Monday morning (10 April). No one was injured. Investigators are on site to begin their work. The line carries mixed traffic including daily intermodal flows, mainly bound for Inverness supermarkets.
