The station was to be named Malin Road, supposedly being some distance from the village, but the name board would be too long for its intended position on the side wall of the gents lavatory; so Malin it is.
The roof, windows and doors were removed; the doors and smoke vent have been saved for use elsewhere. A black rattle can of spray paint was then used to smoke stain the masonry above the windows and door apertures.
The story goes that in the early days of the line, a loco shed was provided at Culdaff to stable a loco overnight for the first up train of the following day. During the 'Troubles' in the early 1920s, the shed was burned down, with a loco inside. At the end of hostilities, a change of the working timetable meant that the shed was no longer required and so it was never rebuilt. The siding has now been equipped with a hand operated crane and facilities for unloading mineral traffic. The ruined loco shed now functions as a rather large buffer stop; the corners of the ruin are also used to store various items of clutter.
