How could anyone passing through the St. Pancras International train station in central London fail to locate the new superfast train that hurtles passengers to the Olympic park in a mere seven minutes? Part of a mass signpost refit before the Olympics, the station is full of jaunty pink “Javelin Train to ” signs.
But do not believe everything you see in print. Some of the signs the other day appeared to contradict one another. One pointed nowhere. Another suggested that the train might be reached via a neglected side exit leading to an abandoned taxi stand.
