The Missing Link At St. Pancras Station

This picture was taken inside St. Pancras station.

I was standing in front of the glass security wall, towards the East (Kings Cross) side of the station.

On the British Library side of the station it is possible to walk along to the four platforms for East Midlands Railway trains.

I wonder why, there isn’t a link down the Kings Cross side of the station, so that it would be possible to walk from the front of the station to the Souyjeastern HighSpeed commuter routes.

  1. The only time I remember it being possible to walk along the other side of St Pancras International Station was during the 2012 Olympics thus helping to move the crowds using Javelin trains from Stratford International.

    It’s still a fact that apart from the area next to the Midland Railway trains the upper level remains underused compared to the packed lower level.

    • Some months ago, I was talking to a East Midlands station guy and he said the station is a nightmare. He told of having to guide a blind man and his dog from a Nottingham train to one for Dover.
      Stations should be efficient for both passengers and. staff.

      St. Pancras should have been demolished and rebuilt as an efficient interchange station.

      So many interchanges at the station are difficult or a very long walk.
