Fantastic shot! Lots to look at in this composition with the statue at the entrance being an eye grabber.
John Prior: Thanks Frances
Wow - that's quite a place, could they fit any more stuff in there?!
John Prior: Always room for more smile

Hmmmm. Looks like a good place for a movie, John. smile
John Prior: As Ayush says, it does remind one of a TV/movie/photo shoot prop house.

Oh yes - lots of lovely things here to examine. I wonder where that very grand statue came from?
John Prior: Statue, Britannia with supporters, London & North Western Railway, formerly displayed in the Great Hall of Euston Station, 1849-1961, subsequently displayed in the restaurant at Euston Station, 1962-1986. Soft stone, sculpted by John Thomas, 1849.
this shot reminds me of some guy who loans artifacts/props like these to the movie houses that create a certain feel. fine view point and nicely framed
John Prior: Yes indeed, I've been to some of those prop houses also when art directing photo shoots.
9 3/4? So this is where the Hogwarts Express starts. A train otaku's paradise.
John Prior: Yes Indeed, it is true smile

What a fantastic sight that statue thing makes. It looks as if one walks under it John.
John Prior: Yes to get the Hogwarts Express Chad. This was once at Euston Station.
Great shot,John, I really should make an effort to visit here.
John Prior: A wet afternoon well spentsmile
Makes me want to go again. By the look of it a lot has been added since we were there.
John Prior: A treasure trove Bill
Just look at all that lovely railwayana stacked away in there.
John Prior: Yes indeed Brian
