This Station was always a bit of a strange station. It was like a country station in the middle of London. Only feet away from one of London busiest stations. Up trains only used this side of the station and came out of one tunnel only to punch back into another. Its other half was on the other side of the main station and both half's must have been run as two stations?
 
I took only a few pictures of this station (did any one?) as there was always something better only feet away.

York Road station closed around 1976 it was used by up trains only from Finsbury Park station which then when underground and used the York Road Curve and City Widening Lines to Farringdon.
 
Down trains used the other side of the station coming up way of The Hotel Curve and using platform 16 at Kings Cross which was renumbered 14 at some time
 
 
Kings Cross railway station is one of the main London stations. The station is in the North of London. Trains run from here to the North East via the East Coast Main Line (ECML) to towns like Huntingdon and Peterborough. Then on to Grantham and Newark, Doncaster, York and Durham to Newcastle. Then into Scotland to Edinburgh were trains can go to rest of Scotland including Glasgow and Aberdeen. Trains also go to Cambridge and Leeds.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.
Today Virgin  East Coast, GBRF and Great Northern are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More
