Howdy,

The main news link from the BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/edinburgh_and_east/6312439.stm

After seeing this first hand this afternoon, being part of the "rescue" crew, hauling some of the wagons to Millerhill i'd like to share a few photo's.. mass carnage if you ask me.

The destroyed Wagons..

Only 36 cars? That doesn't begin to compare with the 4,812 cars lost on the Cougar Ace.
