Train derailment woe for travellers

AN INVESTIGATION is continuing into a train derailment at Edinburgh Waverley on Wednesday that caused misery for Linlithgow commuters.

Passengers waiting to leave at 6pm were at a standstill for 30 minutes, before being told to disembark. Replacement buses were laid on to ferry travellers into the capital.

An Office of Rail Regulation spokesperson said yesterday they were working closely with Network Rail and the Rail Accident Investigation Branch to quickly establish the cause of the derailment. The empty train derailed in the Princes Street Gardens area and timetable disruptions continued yesterday.
