The train, travelling on the Dundee-Aberdeen line, came off the tracks just before 10 a.m on Wednesday morning, according to the British Transport Police (BTP). Three people including a train driver died.
It was the 6.38 a.m. service from Aberdeen to Glasgow Queen Street, according to the Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA).
The union, which represents engineering and maintenance staff at Network Rail and ScotRail, reportedly said the incident happened at Carmont and was reported around 9:45am.
It said the derailment had followed a night of thunderstorms and heavy rainfall.
In a statement, ScotRail said it was also assisting emergency services, and would provide more information when available.
Network Rail Scotland, which owns the tracks, tweeted: “We are working alongside the emergency services to respond to an incident involving a train near Stonehaven. “It is too early to confirm the exact nature and severity of the incident and more details will be made available once known.”
