On 10 December 1937 at Castlecary, A3 Pacific 'Grand Parade' on an Edinburgh to Glasgow express, travelling at 60 mph in a snowstorm, ran into the rear of a stopped Dundee to Glasgow train. 35 passengers were killed and 179 injured. The cause seems to have been a signal fault, with the drivers of both the Dundee and Edinburgh trains insisting that the down distant was at clear, this possibly caused by the snow.
