A bench, presented by Railfuture, and inscribed in the memory of Brian James Hastings was unveiled at Crowle station on 23rd February.
Brian, who passed away in February 2015, was a former Lincolnshire branch chairman who had spent a lifetime campaigning for better public transport in all forms. After a career as a teacher Brian took early retirement then went to work in the rail industry and used his comprehensive knowledge of fares, ticketing and the rail network to run a booking office.
The formal unveiling was done by Peter Myers, Client and Stakeholder Manager Northern Rail, who had known Brian for many years and and was a former colleague. It was watched by many of his Railfuture Lincolnshire branch colleagues and friends from Crowle where Brian was a long standing councillor and former Mayor.
