Crawley Box

Remember the classic 'Tizer and limp sandwiches' photo of Crawley yard by Gordon Gravett in an early MRJ? This is the adjacent box, taken yesterday on a walk into Crawley.

Crawley got a new modern station a few years ago under a sweeping modernisation plan with the site shifted 1/2 mile east. The box was de-commissioned in 1986 (the area being controlled from Three Bridges box) but preserved (with its own society) in 1992. Gordon Gravett's photo being to the right of the second shot.
