A female body was found on the southbound Caltrain tracks between the San Jose Diridon and Tamien stations on Monday morning, a Caltrain spokeswoman said.
The body was found around 9:50 a.m., spokeswoman Christine Dunn said. The person may have been hit by southbound train No. 228, but the circumstances of the death remain under investigation, she said.
A southbound train that was scheduled to arrive at the Tamien station at 10:12 a.m. was allowed to pass through because there were no passengers on board, she said.
However, the next scheduled southbound train -- train No. 236, which was scheduled to arrive at the Tamien station at 11:07 a.m. -- was being held at the San Jose Diridon station, she said.
No northbound trains were scheduled between Diridon and Tamien stations until about 2:30 p.m.. The medical examiner's office was responding to the scene.
