John Crawford

It is with regret we announce the passing of one of our Friends of Broadway Station.

John had worked on the Station for many years helping with the design, planning and hands on in the construction.

Here are a few photos of him taken over the years.

We offer our condolences to John's family at this very difficult time.
John will be greatly missed.


  1. Sorry to hear of John's passing. At least he got to see the station up and running after all the hard work put in by you all.
    Commiserations, Paul.

  2. Very sad to hear this. I believe he designed the station building? Forgive me if I'm wrong. RIP John, you've left a fitting testament to your work in the amazing station that you built.

  3. "Si Monumentum Requiris Circumspice" seems apt

  4. Broadway Station and CRC Platform 2 would never have been built without him. His design and build the signal box and station are a testament to John's contribution to Broadway. I will miss him

  5. How sad to hear the news, however with Johns sense of humour, Broadway Station, what a head stone!!!
    Our deepest sympathy to his family and friends a great team player and wonderful craftsman who will be sadly missed. Rest in peace John, knowing that you did more than your bit to bring Broadway and the rest of the line up to the high standard it is today.
    With our deepest sympathy, thought and prayers for such a lovely man.
    Paul & Marion.

  6. Am sad to hear this, I concur with Platformcat’s comment.

  7. VERY sad news indeed.

    The published photographs in this announcement, speak volumes to John Crawford’s contribution to the Gloucester and Warwickshire Steam Railway. Thank you John, for ALL your hard work and generosity in spirit. You will be VERY sadly missed.

    Condolences and commiserations, to ALL of John Crawford’s family and friends.

  8. Do you know that your security camera is STILL frozen on a broadside on pic of a WR carriage at Broadway?
    Regards, Paul.
