At 6am, a cleaner washes the brightly-tiled floor of the refreshment room at Crewe station, whilst servicemen and civilians buy tea and read the morning papers as they wait for their connecting train. A large sign behind the counter reminds customers to clear the area once they have bought their drinks: "After you have been served please move away from the counter: there are others behind you in a hurry".
