London St. Pancras International Railway Station, England - June 2014 St. Pancras is a central London railway terminus and Grade I listed building located on Euston Road in the St Pancras area of the London Borough of Camden. This film features footage of and within London St. Pancras Railway Station. It begins with shots from Euston Road of the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, before going inside to see a piano player on one of the several pianos left around the station for the public to enjoy. From here footage includes platforms 1 and 2 where two East Midlands Trains inter-city services are in the platform, a Class 43 Inter City 125, and a Bombardier Class 222. Footage then concentrates on some of the artworks in St. Pancras, including the ornate clock, Paul Day's sculpture 'The Meeting Place', the John Betjemen statue and a 20 by 10 metre mosaic called Chromolocomotion by the Scottish artist David Batchelor, which is made up of 44 pieces of brightly coloured Perspex. From here the film goes to the High Speed 1 Southeastern Class 395 Javelin trains, along with their International neighbours the Class 373 Eurostar Trains.
