Here comes one of the busiest stations in Europe, Waterl0o!
He is also famous for the song "Waterloo Sunset" by the Kinks as well as a historical location for "the battele of Waterloo". Some people might also know him from the fact that he was an international station for Eurostar till 2007.
Due to the full house, he had to give up taking the international service, and passed on to St Pancras. The international station became called St Pancras international, and he is under a good care of two brothers - King's Cross & St Pancras.
His great personality is much loved by other stations, as Baker Street says, who has been his close friend for 105 years! This over 100 years of Baker - loo friendship seems still very much alive.

On 10th January in 1863, one of the busiest stations, King's X station was born, now it's named King's X St Pancras.
I'm always amazed just thinking about that they have been seeing numerous events in their long history including two World Wars.
