Train tragedy

First News - - HOME NEWS -

Three peo­ple, in­clud­ing the driver and con­duc­tor, died when a ScotRail train left the tracks and caught fire af­ter hit­ting a land­slip near Stone­haven. The train had been head­ing for Glas­gow when it turned back to­wards Aberdeen be­cause of an­other land­slip fur­ther down the track. An off-duty con­duc­tor had to climb out of the wreck­age and walk miles to raise the alarm, as there was no mo­bile phone sig­nal where the ac­ci­dent hap­pened.
