The Train At Platform One

A bumper crop of photos today, as Nottingham Railway Station was reopened after being under wraps for the past year.

They've spent the best part of £50million in updating, cleaning up and renewing the station. Take the photo above; this used to be a taxi drop off point and small car park. It was a bit grimy and not very welcoming. But now look, it's light, airy and full of character. It will be even more exciting when the shops open sometime soon.

This is the Booking Hall. Doesn't it look wonderful, now it's been rejuvenated and showing off it's Victorian splendour with a fantastic parquet flooring.

Finally, I was in the right place at the right time, as some of the engineers involved in the revamp posed for an official photograph.  So of course I had to take one as well.
