I'm obviously such a geek but I am so excited about the refurbished St Pancras. It looks amazing!
The BBC have put a video up giving a tour and showing how they made it!
Click on the 'Watch Inside St Pancras' just under the photo of the train.
insomuch as it's always looked like a fantastic station from the outside, and i like the fact that they have refurbed an amazing old building
in the penthouse tower? i'll let you come round for biscuits and tea and stuff.
and i'll see what i can do with them
and that was 'wow' enough :D
londoner but isnt St Pancras a really busy station and havent they put lots of shops in it to attract not train riding punters?
i think the idea was to make it more like grand central station in new york, which is as much of a retail destination as a massive train station.
go from euston.
also, leighton buzzard station isn't actually in leighton buzzard.
i really, really hate leighton buzzard.
that there's a heart-rending yet, for outsiders, hilarious story involved?
and an errant bus driver.
it's really cool.
they've also stuck a museum/gallery thing in round the back, past platforms 9/10 with photos of the building of the original railway (i think)
engineers for that project. So today is the day, eh? I'm reflective of how much has happened since that time.
COOL. I loved it when it was featured on that programe The Shock Of The Old, too.
