A bespoke Hornby train set is the star of a new LNER family lounge at King's Cross station.

Featuring a 00 gauge Azuma and a diddy Hogsmeade station, the miniature setup will surely delight kids and their parents, as they wait for their life-sized train (and likely prompt child-free adults to gaze longingly at the miniature track from outside).

The lounge, which is free for families to use, also has an LNER 'heritage wall' and a small play area, which roundly beats sitting outside Little Waitrose and counting the pigeons.

King's Cross, by the way, is home to a Model Railway Club, so if this whole shrunk-down train racket is your thing, call in at one of their club nights and fill your boots.
