"When I was young and green, I remember going to London. Do you know the place? The station's called King's Cross."
"King's Cross? London's Euston! Everybody knows that!
— Gordon and The Foreign Engine, Eight Famous Engines

King's Cross in real life

King's Cross was built as the London hub of the Great Northern Railway and terminus of the East Coast main line. It took its name from the King's Cross area of London, named after a monument to King George IV that was demolished in 1845.

This was where Gordon, Flying Scotsman, and his siblings use to work there pulling express trains to Edinburgh when they were young.

One day, Gordon, Duck, and a visiting engine were arguing about what the name of the big station at London was. Gordon thought it was King's Cross, while the other engine thought it was Euston. Duck thought it was Paddington since he said he used to work there.


Oh dear this page is in a terrible muddle. It needs to go to the works to be mended. Can you be a really useful engine and help?
