Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Pictured: Train driver, 45, who was among three killed”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

6.38am: Despite heavy rain overnight in the area, the train left Aberdeen station as normal, bound for Glasgow Queen Street. 

Between 6.53am and 9.40am: After leaving Stonehaven, the train continued south, before encountering a landslip, caused by torrential rain.  

It began to return north to Stonehaven, initially remaining on the southbound line before crossing at Carmont onto the northbound line. It then hit a second landslip and derailed while returning to Stonehaven.

9.40am: First reports of the incident were received by Police Scotland at 9.40am, but it is unclear if there was a delay between the derailment and it being reported. 

There remains a gap of several hours between the train leaving Stonehaven and the derailment being reported to police.
