Cockspur Street
Cockspur Street
Buses queue at the lights beside Trafalgar Square. The nearest is a bendybus belonging to Go Ahead London Central. These vehicles are due to be phased out due to a promise from the current Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.

The ornate building behind the bus was the corporate headquarters of the Grand Trunk Railway - the name can still be seen in the stonework. The railway was a Canadian railway company that also had some lines in the USA. It was a forerunner of Canadian National Railways. A full history can be read on Wikipedia.
