He forgot the tunnel...


On Friday morning the stoker on the Glasgow-Edinburgh emergency train met with a rather severe accident at Addiewell Station.  It appears that he was standing on the tender as the train passed under the railway bridge.  He had for the moment forgotten that he was approaching the bridge.  He received severe injuries but is recovering. The injured stoker was a student.
