A man has died after a car was hit by a train at a level crossing near Downham Market in west Norfolk on Thursday afternoon.
The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene.
None of the estimated 60 passengers on the train was hurt and the train was not derailed.
According to British Transport Police: “The train involved was the 12.56pm Kings Lynn to Kings Cross service.”
Network Rail (NR) said the crossing between Downham Market and Littleport, was a "user-worked" type, with the user being responsible for opening and closing the gate.
An NR spokesman went on: "Those using the crossing get red and green signals to guide them. The crossing goes across a private road in farmland and serves a few houses.
"It has a number or registered users and other members of the public are not allowed to use it."
The train was slightly damaged in the incident, coming to a halt just down the track. Arrangements were being made to take passengers on to their destinations by bus.
There were no FCC services between Ely and King's Lynn running following the incident at about 1.25pm but the main London to Cambridge line was operating normally.
British Transport Police (BTP) and fire services responded to the incident, with the male car driver being pronounced dead at the scene.
"Officers are currently working to establish the full circumstances including how the car came to be on the tracks," a BTP spokeswoman said.
The Office of Rail Regulation said it would be investigating the incident.
