St Pancras

In my book, Railway Masterpieces (published by Krause in 2002), I wrote, “The station’s great balloon arch train shed, the very first of its kind, spans 240 feet, measures 689 feet long, and rises to 100 feet above rail level at its peak. It was designed by the Midland’s engineer, William Barlow.”
On April 19, 2013, light tickles a Eurostar highspeed train under the famous shed. Lumix LX3 photo.
