Aha. It now becomes apparent why the (never to be electrified ?) Edinburgh to Aberdeen rail link will not be invested in to mitigate the problems south of Stonehaven highlighted by the Carmont rail disaster. As usual the money will be used to support the Central Belt. The main accident report(s) detailing the event have been delayed. But early on it was made clear, by Network Rail, that little cash will be available to reduce the susceptibility of track to falling rocks; a problem not just up north. Indeed there seems to be some haste in the nationalisation of ScotRail and a potential devolving of the Scottish branch of Network rail in order to reduce the UK funding commitment.
