Cows stop trains at Nuneaton

Cows at Nuneaton station halted train services on 7 May 2021.

Services through Nuneaton were disrupted on Friday 7 May after a herd of cows got onto the railway line through the station.

A Network Rail team was sent to remove the cows, and they also had a word with the farmer about ensuring the safety of both livestock and train passengers.

While cows are killed on the line from time to time, and trains derailed after hitting them, the disaster at Polmont, near Falkirk, Scotland, on 30 July 1984 was attributed to the train hitting a cow. 13 passengers died and 61 were injured.
