We raced to King's Cross Station's rescue

A quick turnaround time for this clock restoration job.

Posted on 05 March, 2013



With the deadline fast approaching for the opening of a major station refurbishment at King's Cross in London.  Coupled with a long list of dignitaries lined up to attend, Network Rail realised that a clock on platform 1 dating back to 1887 hadn’t worked for 20 years and needed a complete renovation.


The Smith of Derby team had to work around the clock to renovate the timepiece back to its former glory ensuring that all passengers made their trains on time!


After completing the restoration, the team were not phased by time pressure and ensured that it was a job well done.
