Kings Cross station steam trains 1962 – colour cine film

The guys over at BritishRailways.tv have unearthed and restored some remarkable colour cine film of trains coming at going at Kings Cross station in about 1962.  There are glimpses of old buildings now long gone.
Whilst it's wonderfully evocative the film also illustrates just how filthy and polluted Kings Cross must have been back then before the transition to diesels. If any readers have memories of living or working with steam in Kings Cross we would welcome them in the comments.  If you can't see the embedded player (maybe in our email) then click here.
