Reports are reaching the Strathy that ScotRail engineers have now just about succeeded in getting the derailed power car and carriage back on the rails using jacks.
If successful, the operation will negate the need for a crane to be on site.
"Hopefully they will be able to move the train very shortly," said a witness as the team carried on trying to right the power carriage which had left the track on Saturday morning during a test run, causing major disruption to the Highland line.
"They're also hard at work replacing the damaged track, and if all goes well hope to reopen the line some time on Wednesday.
"We've heard no guarantees, however."
More on this when the Strathy hears from ScotRail itself on latest developments.
