 They were not used just at Crewe. I can remember seeing step boxes used at stations with platforms. That first step is pretty high for some people. The portable step boxes were pretty much standard in the 1940's and '50's. And, I think I remember, not just on the N&W.

 Yes - they were used at Crewe for all passenger trains that I saw in the
50's and 60's:  Nos 7-8, 25-26, 3-4, 15-16.  They are all the ones that I
was familiar with. I rode on 7-8 as a child and 3-4 later.
