I am looking for information on an accident that happened at Monkton in 1903.
From family stories my Grand Uncle, Alexander Davidson, a signalman for Glasgow and South Western Railways was walking along the line, at or close to the station which existed then. Because he was deaf he didnít hear a train coming behind him and was hit and killed instantly by the train. His date of death is given as 12/1/1903.
Can anyone help with extra info or ideas?
