A few photos of the London terminus
(Photos/words © urban75, 24th January, 2007)
Passing through the London main line terminus on my way to Cardiff.
Changing tubes at Oxford Circus station which was unusually bereft of any advertising.
There'd been a light dusting of snow in London overnight, and this - naturally - immediately translated into the 'snow chaos' seen on this newspaper headline on Paddington station.
Entrance gates to Paddington station.
Getting on my train under Brunel's magnificent trainshed.
Inspired by Joseph Paxton's Crystal Palace, Brunel built a three-span iron and glass structure, measuring 700 feet long and 240 feet wide, with a 102 feet wide centre span.
Station clock, waiting train and incoming 125 express.
