Very sad this morning when the 0714 from Worcester Foregate Street which I had been on since Stourbridge, hit a person at Tyseley station causing a fatality. It appears someone jumped down from the bridge at Tyseley station into the path of the train. You never think something like this will happen to you, but unfortunately it did today. Didn't realise it was a fatality until it was announced by the guard - there was a bump followed by heavy braking, causing bits of ballast to flick up onto the windows, making me think someone had lobbed a load of stones at the train from Tyseley platform. Smoke emitting from underneath the train caused passengers in my carriage to move to the next one in a panic. Full credit to the LM crew - they were superb throughout, and no passenger complained. When we started moving again, the guard gave the details for how we could make a complaint, but I think it would take a pretty heartless person to do so given how well he dealt with the situation and how well we were kept informed. After an hour at a stand we moved onto Acocks Green where the service terminated, and I got a bus onto Solihull. Thoughts with the driver and the person's family.
