Hawkesbury Lane: lnwhl145a

Close up showing on Hawkesbury Lane's down platform the station's former LNWR station nameboard and the brick built gentlemen's toilet

Close up of image 'lnwrhl145' showing on Hawkesbury Lane's down platform the station's former LNWR station name board and the brick built gentlemen's toilet. On the other side of the open level crossing gates the workmen's hut in the siding can be seen. The shortness of both platforms is evident in this view being only sufficient to accommodate two carriages. The author remembers as a child that when longer trains were used at stations with short platforms the passengers would be advised on boarding to use only the first two carriages, although at least on one occasion at Tile Hill station he remembers that the train did draw forward to allow passengers to alight from the rear carriages.
