The LNER guard opened both sides of the cupboard - the short side nearest the exterior carriage door also retracts, making access to the hooks much easier. I've never seen this unlocked or open on GWR.

Neither have I! 

GWR guards are generally invisible - I've never had any kind of assistance when boarding or during a journey, no matter the problem (usually standing in a crowded vestibule with the bike because the cupboard was full of other people's carp).
