Work to alter the track layout at Kings Cross, with station still working as normal.
 
There are two class 47s in Kings Cross station while work to alter the track layout is under way ready for the overhead wires. Today the station would be closed for weeks with buses replacing the trains.
 
This mid week overall photo shows that the west side has already had its track altered but the York road side still has work ongoing with a class 31 on a spoil train. the tunnel to the widen lines can be made out to the left. These photos were taken from a small hole in the wooden fence above the tunnels.
