It's a train from my company (First).

We aren't having a good month (2 derailments due to landslides this month).  Sad

Even tho the driver was injured, he still managed to go to a road for help.

Good to see everyone got out ok tho, thanks to the crew  Smile

Sorry I have a bit of a complaint about First (buses), they have picked up the habit of putting a single Decker on one of the busiest routes in Aberdeen at rush hour. Yesterday I could hardly get into the bus and had to get out of the bus when other people were getting on. But they use a double Decker at 7-12 when the buses are hardly ever full. Sorry I've been waiting to tell some one for ages.
Good that no one got injured, BMIFlyer roughly how much does a Train like that cost?
Thanks

Quoting TheSorcerer (Reply 2):

That 'model' (Turbostar) is priced at just over £2 million per 3 car train.

Thanks
