ScotRail has introduced a temporary train service in a remote part of the Highlands, after locals who have no other access to public transport expressed fears theyd miss out on 'essential' shopping trips and medical appointments.

The 17:37 Fort William “ Glasgow service was temporarily removed from the timetable following a 90 per cent fall in the number of passengers using the train during the coronavirus pandemic.

The changes being made to the timetable reflect the current demand from customers, while delivering better value for the taxpayer.

A 24-wagon freight train derailed between Corrour and Tulloch on the West Highland Line.

Freight wagons, recovered from the scene, have been left in front of the Corrour Station House, which has become hidden from the view of passing trade.
