Replacement of Crakehall Crossing Gate

Part 2 - Official Opening and Award

In February 2023 the new crossing gates at Crakehall were used for the first time. The ribbon was cut by Bob Coombs who paid for the gates

In December 2023, Bob Coombs on behalf of the railway was been awarded 'The Hendy & Pendle Trust Volunteers Award' at the National Railway Heritage Awards Ceremony for his superb work on the replacement level crossing gates at Crakehall. Bob would like to thank all the other volunteers/staff of the railway, without whom, this job would never have been done.
