It is only right that credit is given to Madeline, who started the flower display at the Station Buffet over 21 years ago. It started with two tubs and over the years expanded to what it is today. She became known as the " lady who does the flowers". People come to the station to just sit and look at the flowers, and it has become one of the most photographed stations in the country, with a lot of people saying it is the best kept station.
