"The 7.25 pm. down passenger train (ex Glasgow) was standing at the platform at Tillicoultry Station, when the 7.30 pm. up passenger train (ex Perth) approached the station on the single line, and an end-on collision occurred between the two engines. The down train consisted of a four-wheels-coupled engine and tender attached to seven vehicles as described in the evidence, and was fitted throughout with the Westinghouse automatic continuous brake...

In addition to the fireman of the down train, fourteen passengers complained at the time of having received injuries, and sixteen others have since complained of the effects of shock, but I understand that in no case have the injuries proved to be serious. "
