The body of a man found on railway tracks between Tonbridge and Paddock Wood on Saturday morning has yet to be identified.
British Transport Police were called to the line close to Postern Lane in Tonbridge at 7.10am where a body had been found underneath a road bridge.
Medics from South East Coast Ambulance also attended but the man, thought to have sustained injuries consistent with falling from a height and being struck by a train, was pronounced dead at the scene.
However extensive enquiries, including taking fingerprints, have not provided officers with any clues as to his identity.
He is described as aged between 50 and 60 years old, of slim build and around 5 foot 7 inches in height. His hair is thick, dark brown and greying at the sides.
The man was wearing black Wrangler jeans, a black Wrangler t-shirt and a grey-green round neck heavy knitted jumper made by Kilspindie of Scotland. On his feet he wore black Reebok Classic trainers and green socks.
A souvenir keyring containing the logo from Knole House in Sevenoaks was also found in the man's pocket.
