An inquest into the death of a Wiltshire man whose body was found by a railway line has given a verdict of accidental death.
Tom Edwards, 32, from Calne, Wiltshire, was found dead on 3 July close to the railway line between Chippenham and Bath Spa.
He had failed to return home from a night out in Swindon.
The coroner heard the train would have been travelling between 65 and 67 mph at the time Tom left it.
The train was examined and there was no evidence of damage to the doors or locking system.
Mr Edwards had been on a night out at Rudi's bar in Swindon with colleagues from Nationwide.
He left to catch the last 55 bus back home. The inquest heard he jogged to the bus stop as he was running late.
Two policemen in a patrol car saw him fall over as he ran and then pick himself up.
PC Stephen Forest told the coroner: "I shouted 'are you okay?'" He ignored us and kept running.
The car finally caught up with Tom. He told the police he was running late for a bus. The officers gave him a lift to the bus stop.
"There was nothing about him to suggest he was going to come to any harm," said PC Forest.
The inquest was shown CCTV footage showing Mr Edwards running to the bus stop and then later walking through Swindon train station.
