Site of train derailment reopened

Rail services between Aviemore and Inverness have been restored, but at a reduced frequency, following the derailment of a freight train.

A locomotive hauling eight bogies with containers came off the tracks at Carrbridge railway station last Monday.

Work started late last week to clear the site and repair damage to the line. Signalling equipment was also damaged.

Network Rail said trains were able to use the tracks, but at a reduced frequency.

A spokesman said it was hoped the damaged signalling equipment would be replaced by Sunday.
