It is a pity therefore to see that the pattern of the tracery is now all but lost when seen against the backdrop of Grimshaw's new steel structure. Further visual confusion results from the fact that the new roof truss cuts across the arch of the staflon shed at mid height, with the back of the hotel visible above.

As Ken Powell reminds us, High-Tec architects have long claimed Victorian train sheds to be a source of inspiration. This being the case the discordant relationship between the new structure and the existing train shed is all the harder to understand.
