Waverley Excursions general manager Paul Semple told The Scotsman: “Repairs will be done prior to the start of next year’s season, so there is no rush to complete them now.”
Mr Semple said he expected the MAIB investigation to take some time.
The crash happened weeks after Waverley had returned to service last month following an absence of two years – the longest in her history – because of a £2.3 million boiler refit and the coronavirus lockdown.
