Going underground at Kings Cross

Kxtubesign Kings Cross is the most important transport hub in London and it often pops up on the wonderful UndergroundGal tube driver blog.  It is a wonderful factual insight into how tube trains work and the day to day struggle to keep them running.  KX pops up in the most recent post.

‘Approaching Kings Cross I could see the platform was busy, and there were two CSA’s on the platform, who seemed rather relieved when my train came in with “Cockfosters” up instead of the “Not In Service” that their dot matrix was reporting! Finsbury Park was also busy, and I got a call from the L/C whilst there to say that the train was going through to Cockfosters and that I would be relieved at Arnos. So I didn’t have to do my finaly Arnos – Cockfosters – Arnos, either – which is good, because I got to Arnos about the same time I should have been finishing.’

    All I want to know is if there is an escalator or lift from the tube up to the train concorse or do we still have to hump our bagage up those ghastly stairways
