Ruth Leach picks out some recent highlights from the redevelopment of Station Hall.
The changes to Station Hall came on in leaps and bounds last week. We installed a number of platform installations, graphics and collection items.
Between now and February, we’ll be finishing off a couple of the platform installations, continuing to install collection items, and adding more graphics to the space. We’ll also be installing the audio and AV elements, which will really bring the space to life. These include different soundscapes for each of the areas – things like hurrying footsteps along the Concourse, an official welcoming party amongst the royal trains and wheel tapping and coupling in the Goods Yard. You’ll also be able to watch excerpts from Nightmail in our Travelling Post Office, excerpts from Journey Inter-City in our Mark IID carriage, and the whole of John Schlesinger’s Terminus.
