A PASSENGER has been slammed for going underneath a stopped train in Troon to recover a bag they dropped. 

ScotRail have issued a warning after the dangerous stunt which the driver was unaware of at the time. 

The woman climbed underneath the train whilst another woman kept the door open preventing the train from moving off. 

She had dropped a bag and went under the train to retrieve it as she embarked at Platform 1 from a train heading for Glasgow Central at 3.15pm yesterday(Tuesday, September 8). 

The train operator are now reviewing CCTV footage and have reported the incident to British Transport Police. 

They say the careless actions of the man could result in a serious injury. 

A ScotRail spokesperson said: “We’re aware of an incident where a customer climbed down on the tracks at Troon station on Tuesday, September 8, which has been reported to the relevant authorities.

“We take this opportunity to remind people not to trespass anywhere on the railway as they put themselves and others at risk of serious injury.”

A spokesperson for British Transport Police said: “We received reports of a passenger between the train and the platform at Troon station, on September 8 at 3.18pm.

"Trespassing is incredibly dangerous, and every year we see hundreds of people taking risks like this on and around the railway, which can have devastating impacts.”
