Kings Cross Station behind the scenes tour

Kings_cross_tour Many of you were interested in a station tour which Network Rail kindly offered.  It’s a fantastic building with a great history.  Hopefully I have mailed almost everyone who replied – apologies if I missed you in the email avalanche that is my inbox it’s nothing personal !  Alastair at Network Rail has came back as follows, get in touch with him (click here) to arrange a slot:

‘Regarding potential tour slots, there are two broad times which seem to be the most amenable to taking a group of people around the site for July. These are 10-11.30am on (Tuesday 15 or 22 July) or 2.30-4pm on a Thursday (17 July). I appreciate that this might be difficult for some people with work commitments etc., but hopefully there will be some on the list who can hopefully make one of the slots. The reason for the time relates to avoiding the rush hour of the station and to highlight some of the building work going on.

‘As a rule, it is looking like these two time slots (on Tuesdays and Thursdays) are something we can carry on (if demand is there) in the Summer (holidays depending).

‘Jon Burden, who used to be the Duty Station Manager at King’s Cross will be on hand to take people around along with myself, hopefully giving as close an insight into the station as it’s possible to give while work is going on.’

It’s a shame they can’t offer evening slots but i can see why given the rush hour.  It’s a great building well worth bunking off work for – perhaps you can arrange a ‘meeting in N1’…..
