Good spot.

Interesting that a CRARRV is to be used (by now possibly is being/has been used) at Stonehaven. I think this is a "first" in the UK, the used of an armoured recovery vehicle at a railway accident.

First minute of this clip.

The wagons are I assume IKAs - useful alternative use for them.

What a strange video - the cameraman panned through on the locomotive, not the crane. What was he thinking? :lol:

Where does it mention / show the CRARRV?
