He said staff and volunteers appreciated the "support and understanding" of travellers and apologised for any inconvenience caused by the timetable changes .

Following his death, Mr Lund's family described him as a "a caring husband and father" and "keen railway enthusiast".

His death is not being treated as suspicious.
