A railway enthusiast who died after his head hit a signal gantry as he leaned out of a speeding train was so badly injured that he would not have been aware of the accident, an inquest has heard.
Simon Brown, 24, was killed as he stuck his head out of the window of the guard’s compartment on a Gatwick Express train. He collided with the gantry between Balham and Wandsworth Common stations in south-west London on 7 August last year.
