Close up of image 'lnwrcov585' showing the opposite side of the up starter signals located at the end of the up platform. This close up view is of interest because it shows some kind of structure embedded in the embankment in front of the up starter signals. It is possibly an air raid shelter provided after the blitz on November 1940. The view also shows why the Leamington branch and Warwick Road bridge effectively kept the down platform very short. The only solution to making the platform longer was to extend the platform north and under the Warwick Road, a plan first commenced in 1939 but not completed until the 1960s.
