Two restored London stations in great evening light

On Thursday evening we were walking along the Euston Road towards King's Cross  and couldn't resist taking photos of both St Pancras and King's Cross, which have both been restored. It seems crazy that there was ever a serious possibility of losing the wonderful St Pancras building. Fortunately campaigners, with poet and author John Betjeman prominent amongst them, managed to forestall the demolition plans.  

More recently King's Cross Station has been restored. 

The whole King's Cross area has been transformed from being one of London's seedy red-light districts to one of buzzy bars and bright lights. 

The delights of St Pancras and King's Cross now point up how unpleasant the main station of nearby Euston is, although a the number of outside cafés has now made this station less desolate.
