Minute’s silence held as first carriage recovered from train crash site

A minute’s silence has been held ahead of the recovery of the first carriage from the site of the fatal train crash near Stonehaven. Train driver Brett McCullough, 45, conductor Donald Dinnie, 58, and passenger Christopher Stuchbury, 62, died when the 6.38am Aberdeen to Glasgow Queen Street ScotRail service derailed in Aberdeenshire after hitting a landslip on August 12 following heavy rain. Workers at the site and members of the emergency services took part in the minute’s silence on Thursday morning. A 600-tonne crawler crane is being used to lift the derailed carriages from the railway line.
