Platform 9 3/4

These pictures of of the subway station under Kings Cross railway station. 

This part of it is unused.  It must be pretty creepy. 

No doubt when you look closely, you can see platform 9 and three quarters. 

The real one of course....grin!

Just look at those marvelous girders!  And brickwork which was installed when Sherlock Holmes was in short pants!   

The arched tunnels were built when Jesse James was robbing trains.  

The Titanic was a distant far off in the future dream.

And they ran steam trains down here!

It is a steam punk paradise!

These are a fascinating glimpse of a part of the world which has been pretty much unseen since 1941.
