Supposedly 43012 has derailed on a 2+5 set working 5S85 0212 Tomatin - Perth.
Somewhere south of Kingussie by the looks of that link?
Incident was at around 3.15 a.m. on Saturday 10th April 2021. Not a passenger train in service, apparently.When was it? Any news stories?
The railway line between Perth and Inverness has been closed after a train derailed during overnight testing.
The incident happened near to Dalwhinnie station in the Highlands at about 03:15.
ScotRail said it was not a passenger service and no-one was injured.
Passengers have been warned to expect disruption to services. Trains to and from Inverness to Edinburgh and Glasgow Queen Street will terminate at Pitlochry and restart from Aviemore.
A ScotRail spokesperson said: "Services between Perth and Inverness are currently disrupted. There will be replacement bus services for those making essential journeys.
"Customers should check our website, app and social media channels for the latest arrangements before they travel."
No provision for bi-directional working. All plain track apart from an emergency crossover at Dalnacardoch.I don't like to speculate and prefer to listen for proper reports.
But. The photo posted by Efini92 is about 200 yards South of the station where Ben Alder Road crosses the line (seen on Googlemaps). The majority of the set which we understand was returning to Perth is clearly on the Northbound line, yet there is severe damage to the Southbound track close to the crossing (presumably caused by the derailed power car) and a noticeable kink in the rail at the crossover points just in view.
Are the lines on the double track section between Blair Athol and Dalwhinnie used occasionally for bi-directional working? Or is the fact that the set is mostly on the Northbound track as unusual as it appears to the layman?
