Day -3 Trains, London and purple McLarens

I’m off.  Seat J-10 on the Caledonian train from Inverness to London Kings Cross. I joined the train at 10:15 in Gleneagles.

The train rolls into London, more or less on time. I’m staying at a non-descript hotel just off Holborn so I don my walking shoes and amble on down, taking in St Pancras Station on the way. I rather like the big statue under the clock.

‘The Meeting Place’ statue in St Pancras

The detail around the base of this statue is astonishing.

…and the grand old station itself is pretty splendid.

Off to find some dinner, then bed. Paris awaits tomorrow. Sacre bleu…
