There’s a small model railway currently running around in a loop at St Pancras Station.

It’s part of a pop-up shop by the model railway maker, Hornby and while it’s an attempt to flog their wares in the run up to Christmas… there’s a Model Railway At St Pancras Station!

There’s also a couple of glass cases filled with Hornby wares.

Among the railway kits, they have a Paddington branded one, and from Kings Cross, the Harry Potter set — but ironically, nothing from St Pancras, not even their new Eurostar set.

The pop-up shop can be found on the station’s lower concourse until Christmas Eve this year.

Officially it’s open from 7am to 9pm daily, although I think the attendant must have been caught by a rail replacement service on the morning I visited.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
