It is with great sorrow and sadness that I type this detail. Both of these power cars were involved in the Stonehaven Rail accident on 12/08/20 - their status on this website will remain blank for the foreseeable future as it is highly inappropriate to concern ourselves with this considering the extremely sad news of 3 people losing their lives in this terrible incident. Our thoughts and prayers remain with all affected by the events of yesterday
