Unknown train or Digger? Would anybody know what this train or tractor thing is in Dingwall?

Those could be track side cable troughs on the platform. However, the black plastic piping could be for drainage use which would then be connected to the box like sections on the platform as they have the holes in the sides. They would have manhole covers fitted when in place.

The vehicle is, I would suggest, a road/railer with hydraulic arm. Could be any of many manufacturer, the active grab being interchangeable with other hydraulic implements for use by many different applications. Looking again it could be an Atlas job, but don't take my word for it, I've been out of hydraulics for too many years.

The road-rail vehicle could be a Liebherr, possibly their model A900C ZW type 1033.
