Jet trails and the central tower

It might be hard to see it now, but a hundred years ago, railway stations were the airports of the age, with powerful steam engines promising a brighter, sleeker, faster future.

For first class passengers, a trip on a train would be more akin to journeying on a steam liner, with lavishly equipped express trains offering every facility.

Several named express trains ran from St Pancras, including the Master Cutler (to Leeds, via Sheffield and Doncaster) and the Midland Pullman (to Leicester and Manchester).
