Inside King’s Cross: The Railway

Network Rail colleagues have a starring role in new Channel 5 documentary ‘Inside King’s Cross: The Railway’.

The four-part documentary premieres on Monday 6 March at 21:00 and follows colleagues from Network Rail and train operating companies as they deal with the day-to-day running of the railway including managing major incidents, which cause disruption, and keeping all passengers safe as they travel to their destination.

Laura Murphy, station manager, said: “London King’s Cross is the gateway between our capital city and the rest of the country, and its starring role in the upcoming Channel 5 documentary will give me and my team an opportunity to share the highs and lows of a day in the life of the incredibly busy, but fantastic station.

“No day is ever the same for us and I’m very excited to give viewers a glimpse of the amazing characters who work tirelessly to keep our passengers safe all day, every day.”

Behind the scenes of disruption

In Monday’s episode, viewers will witness a day of disruption at London King’s Cross as a train loses power on the East Coast Main Line, blocking services and causing hours of delays at stations from the north-east of England all the way to London.

The next three episodes will be aired on Monday 13 March, 20 March and 27 March respectively.
