Although that site is already occupied now, I'm pleased they didn't build that one. The City must have an eclectic set of skyscrapers but not with boxy ones.

This will be the last tall building in London that gets finished for quite a while, I imagine.

I got some old trains that I don't use. They are VERY old I guess. Need to sell them since I don't use them.

But the idea of having a model scale train and a lovely skyline sounds wonderful. Let's make our own model. I love to build skyscrapers on scale model.

This tower should be rising by now, getting disappointed with the speed of progress
