Visitors to the station will be greeted by a monumental aluminium installation created by the celebrated sculptor, Ron Arad RA. Thought of Train of Thought is the second public artwork in a four-year partnership between the RA and St Pancras International. Suspended on wires from St Pancras International's Grade 1 listed Barlow Shed roof, the work comprises one 18-metre twisted blade made of aluminium, rotating slowly to create an optical illusion. Ron Arad RA said: "The rotation and the horizontal movement take turns in the viewers' perception as the readings of the object alternate and the hypnotic effect is greater than the means, so will hopefully be the delight of the public at St Pancras."
