Comment posted BBC news piece with helicopter footage of derailed freight train on West Highland Line by Lundavra.

The video from RESCUE 137 has the position of the helicopter displayed at the bottom of the frame. I converted it to NGR and looked up on the map as none of the news reports gave the position. It is about 2.5 miles from Fersit so about 2 miles from the nearest road (or track) by the East end of the dam.

    ‘At least an admission this site is not for Argyll but – ” this is an anti-SNP website”.’

    If you read it you will see that is a reference to the source of the report which is a site that is quite open about being against the SNP (unlike some of the SNP supporting sites that were being quoted last year as if they were real news sites).

    Wind deflectors are going to have be quite substantial structures even if louvered and there are so many places where they could be said to be justified.

    I wonder if they would cost as much as Armco barriers and of course the barriers can prevent a vehicle going off the road in any other accidents.

    Also going to spoil the view for the tourists on the buses.

    Traffic Scotland have their VMS displaying High Wind warnings all over Scotland when there is often only a slight breeze but places like this just have standard non-illuminated signs. But it should be obvious to drivers that it is windy.

    Plod Scotland now say

    “A tour bus which was heading through Argyll was struck by a very strong gust of wind which unfortunately blew it on to the muddy verge, causing the bus to flip on its side and roll down the hill coming to a rest at the side of Loch Restil.

    “Fifty one persons were on board and thankfully we can account for every single person.”

    Could be that they had to force the door or did some cutting on the other side.

    The BBC picture must have been quite soon after the accident as still removing passengers, many more emergency vehicles on later images.

    Some pictures of it down below the road on BBC News site and Twitter.

    (First time I have looked at the BBC News website since they ‘improved it on Monday’, given it up because they have made such a mess of it. Only saw this because it was linked from Twitter).
