Scanning some more old photographs, I came across these pictures of King’s Cross on a raw January day in 1970. My camera was awful, so apologies for the fuzzy focus. But I’d forgotten what a great place the end of the platform at King’s Cross was. Most trains were locomotive hauled and Deltic’s were very much in evidence.
The station throat and diesel stabling point set the modelling mojo working. All very compact, despite the size of the terminus. Oh to go back to 1970 with a modern digital camera! I’d settle for that, though perhaps a few years earlier with a station full of steam and A4’s would be even better. Enjoy….
