FIFE RAILWAYMAN KILLED BY TRAIN: RUN OVER WHEN OILING POINTS

A Cairneyhill railway surfaceman, David Morgan (52), Mansion House Buildings, was killed at Valleyfield, near Dunfermline, yesterday, when he was struck by a mineral train.

The accident occurred in the neighbourhood of Valleyfield Colliery. Morgan had been oiling the railway points.

It is understood no-one saw the accident, but it appears Morgan was run over by waggons during shunting operations.
