During the stations heyday, Cranmore was originally had 2 platforms, but with closure in the 60's, the site became derelict and platform 2 was demolished and was not rebuilt as part of the ESR's restoration at the time.
However, with preserved traffic increasing, (and as platform 1 is sometimes overcrowded during special events), the ESR does aim to rebuild the long-demolished platform (2) (to reduce congestion and relieve Cranmore station).
