New life for old clock

St Pancras, London Uk

Numerous historical pieces have been restored to St Pancras including a clock which once hung in the grand station. In the 1970's the clock was sold to an American collector for around £250,000. However, while it was taken down it fell and smashed into thousands of pieces. It was said to be beyond repair and so a retired train driver asked to buy the pieces for £25. Now more than 30 years on the clock has been fully restored.

Although, it was to badly damaged to be hung back in the station, so a replica has been made to put put in the same place as the original. Goldbury Coatings Ltd has coated the clock with Cromadex's 750 two pack epoxy primer and 600 two pack polyurethane topcoat. This offers product protection for up to 25 years.
