A Container train has derailed near Ely this morning.

Any sign of any Cranes being put to use.
One comment says surrounding land is a bit boggy.

Or will it be BRUFF type vehicles instead.

Elsewhere a comment unconfirmed was that at least 1 Crane is on its way from Wigan.

Reported on WNXX website that 68016 has worked 4K97 from Crewe - Ely with ADRC96715 and support coaches. Don't know if they'll be used as apparently access is very restricted.

The BBC Local Live Cambridge blog ( or whatever it is ) notes a crane has arrived via Manea.
It is the Colas Kirow 1200 - so the second time this year a non NR crane used at an accident site.
(( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-engla ... 6b0cfa8b6e ))

Has the NR CS worked into the other end of the incident?
I couldnt find any likely movement on Real Time Trains.

Apparently 96715 has been parked up at Whitemoor Yard, reportedly due to lack of suitable crew.
