Agent crossing railway line nimbly (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

spryly

Here is my best explanation:

'nimbly' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'agent crossing railway line' is the subsidiary indication.

'agent' becomes 'spy' (spy is a kind of agent).

'crossing' indicates putting letters inside.

'railway' becomes 'ry'.

'line' becomes 'l'.

'ry'+'l'='ryl'

'spy' going around 'ryl' is 'spryly'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Another definition for spryly that I've seen is "In a nimble or agile manner".)
