Susan enjoyed cake, banners, a special announcement on notice boards and the company of dear colleagues as she waved her railway career goodbye.

Marc Edwards, Stevenage station manager, said: "Susan had a big presence within the team and was a huge resource for staff. She will be greatly missed."

Although Susan is looking forward to spending more time with her grandchildren in Stevenage, she won't be missed for too long - she has already promised to tend after the station's flower boxes that she helped to plant.

She said: "I am really going to miss all the people at the railway, but I intend to come back regularly."
