Accident at the Station

Falkirk Herald – 20 April 1895

On Monday evening a Glasgow man, who evidently wished to travel from Buchanan St to St Rollox, found that the train did not stop at the latter station. The first stoppage being Cumbernauld Station, he attempted to get out on the wrong side while the train was in motion, with the result that he was discovered at about 11 o’clock with his arm nearly off. The Perth train, which was due to pass about a quarter of an hour afterwards, was stopped, and the unfortunate man was conveyed to the Royal Infirmary. He belonged to Springburn.
