The Railway sadly have to announce the passing of long-serving safety officer Michael Goodall of Leeds.
Mike served the railway for 47 years but lost his battle with cancer at the age of 75 on 29th September 2013 and, as a mark of respect, a wreath was carried by a train the following weekend.
The Railway’s Chairman, Dr. Matt Stroh, said: “His job with British Railways meant we never had a safety briefing without him being able to give us an anecdote about a situation he’d previously experienced. His passing has severed yet more links with the Railway’s formative years.”
A full tribute to Mike will appear in the Spring 2014 issue of the Society’s magazine, Push and Pull.
