Since my last post, when we made real inroads into the installation work in Station Hall, we’ve been focusing on getting the finishing touches just right.
Our Conservation team have been installing collection items throughout Station Hall. Here they’re adding some railway maps to the Concourse wall.
They also installed some station totems from our collection.
We’ve also installed graphics throughout the space. Here is our ‘poster cloud’ on the entrance railings to Station Hall. Choosing just 6 posters from our collection of over 10,000 was no mean feat.
The reverse of the poster cloud showcases some of the images from our collection, along with some of the great stories we collected as part of our Station Stories project.
We’ve also opened up our Mark II carriage so that visitors can get in and enjoy watching a film in the carriage.
We’ve also been trialling some steam effects, with more tests to do in the coming weeks.
But my favourite image of the last few weeks has to be this one – I think it shows just how far we’ve come in redeveloping Station Hall, and transforming it into an atmospheric space.
