On today’s BBC Radio Ulster’s Good Morning Ulster programme, there was a short feature when former Station Master Randal Cave returned to the platforms for the first time in fifty five years.

Randal was only 17 when he was promoted from his usual position of Junior Relief Clerk. Randal paid us a visit recently when over on a trip from his home in Canada, and it was this visit that perked the interest of the media.
