A woman who has to travel two hours every day to see her premature newborn gets free train pass

Rachel Broadway travels 70 miles each day to visit her daughter.

(CNN)Rachel Broadway travels two hours every day -- much of it by train -- to visit her baby daughter, who was born prematurely in December.

But now, thanks to an unexpected act of kindness from a train conductor, she can at least take the train ride free of charge.
Broadway, who lives in Retford, in the British Midlands, gave birth to twins Ocean and Odin at Sheffield Teaching Hospital about 12 weeks before their due date. While baby Odin was fine, his sister developed a serious condition known as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), an intestinal illness that typically affects premature babies.
