Kings Cross to Cambridge - High Speed Rail

Doing the journey on the 13:15 on Sunday 12 July 2015, speeding it up 10 times and adding in the irrepressible Public Service Broadcasting's version of WH Auden's poem "Night Mail".

Just a small quick clip that shows the speedy exit through London suburbs, conurbations of Hertfordshire, and increasing rurality heading out towards Cambridge. I really love the way the view opens out the further along this goes, giving some stunning sky scapes and views nearer the end.
