Has anyone been through Gatwick Airport station within the last couple of weeks and noticed how busy the ticket hall is and whether there is still a single queuing system for the ticket machines?
There are a couple of new self service ticket machines that I want to get tickets from and assume I'll have to queue and when I get to the front let others pass until one of the machines becomes free. Then queue again to get the other machine.

I was there on Thursday afternoon and there was literally no one at the ticket machines. Also, they've only got two (or maybe three) ticket windows now and I've never seen anyone queuing at those since before Covid.

Have you see the ticket machine yet? I bought a barcode ticket from there this morning for novelty value.
Yes I was there last week, the place was deserted.
Bought a ticket from both machines but they don't show machine numbers so tickets from both are indistinguishable and no doubt all printing will fade within a couple of months.
