Details: The Metrobus garage at Crawley is next to the railway line south of Gatwick Station and was recently made more visible by the removal of a lot of lineside vegetation. This photo taken on 14th September 2008 shows much of the yard and several service vehicles. At either end of the row parked nearest the camera are recently delivered Ford Transit Connect vans, 9024 (EA08FHP) to the right and 9023 (EA08FHB) to the left. Second from the right is brand new Renault Trafic high roof engineers van 9102 (LX58XCT), which was delivered to Orpington garage very soon afterwards. The Ford Transit is 8014 (GP53RBX), destined to be replaced by a delivery of Renault Trafic minibuses the following month.

RayOver the line is an industrial estate which allows a clear view in the opposite direction (but only when most of the run-out has occurred), the red-edged buildings being at the rear of this estate.

DamonTaken from a passing train on the fast lines. A closer view can be had from the slow lines and if you're lucky you may get held at signals outside of Gatwick and get a longer view!Mon 08/12/2008, 12:33
