The century-old Flying Scotsman, the first steam locomotive to exceed 100 miles per hour, was one of the affected trains, according to British media.

“Two individuals were sent to Raigmore Hospital. Other passengers are being treated on the scene, and investigations are ongoing, according to a statement from Police Scotland.

According to the statement, the two trains crashed at around 7:00 pm (1800 GMT) in a station 600 miles (965 kilometers) north of London, the capital of the United Kingdom.

An operator of train services in Scotland, ScotRail, announced on X that “we’re currently unable to run any trains through Aviemore station while they work” because “emergency services are responding to an incident on a private railway near the mainline.”

A landslip brought on by heavy rain in August 2020 led a morning train from Aberdeen to Glasgow to derail, killing three persons close to the town of Stonehaven in northeast Scotland.

After acknowledging health and safety violations related to the derailment, the business that owns and operates UK rail infrastructure was hit with multimillion dollar penalties.
