Arriving at a London terminus for the first time is always a spectacle despite the decade. I remember being very young and my father taking me to Victoria station just for the look around. Usually we'd only go as far as Clapham Junction, but I can remember the times we went to Victoria and how exciting it seemed to be. All the stock in different colours, the noise and pace of the station, even the posters for West End musicals on the wall. Then a long sleep all the way home from all the excitement.
