A spokesman said: "Officers were called to an incident at Barrow Upon Soar railway station on Thursday, 17 January, after receiving a report of a man being struck by a train at 9.46am.
"Leicestershire Police and medics from the Ambulance Service also attended but the man was declared dead at the scene.
"At this stage, the death is not being treated as suspicious and officers are now working to identify the man and the exact circumstances of his death.
"Once these inquiries are complete, a file will be prepared for the coroner.
"The train involved was East Midlands Trains' 8.15am London St Pancras to Nottingham service.
"Services between Leicester and Loughborough were cancelled while emergency services dealt with the incident but the line was handed back to Network Rail at 10.50am."
An East Midlands Trains spokesman said the line reopened at 11am, but warned of continued disruption while trains caught up with the timetable.
