“We appreciate all of the flowers, cards and gifts you have all left for Evie.
“We would like you to know your kind notes have comforted us at this sad time.”
A spokesman for British Transport Police said: “We were called to reports of an incident at the Corondale Road crossing at around 4.30pm on Tuesday.
