St Pancras station emerges from restoration

StpancA friend tipped me off that recent changes at St Pancras now allowed passengers into the part-restored Barlow trainshed and even without having a ticket.  The internal views are simply beautiful – the steelwork has been painted back to its original powder blue, the glass has been replaced letting in huge amounts of light and you get to walk in some of the undercroft. My fuzzy mobile phone picture is (literally) impressionistic.

But most intriguing of all is that a sense of mystery still prevails about what the train shed will look like when it is finished.  There is still much scaffolding and sheeting you can’t see the whole thing – St Pancras seems to be doing a prolonged dance of the seven veils as it constantly reveals different bits to the viewing public.  Perhaps it is in keeping with the whole Kings Cross vibe to have the world’s biggest and oldest stripper ?  Easily the best architectural attraction i n London right now, well worth a stroll down on a sunny day – and it is free.
