' The goods yards of the North London Railway next to Broad Street Station are perhaps the closest open yards to a London Passenger terminus. To the south of the River such yards were unknown, freight traffic being dealt with at separate locations such as Nine Elms and Bricklayers Arms. North of the river there were large goods sheds (at Paddington) and covered depots under station (St Pancras for Burtons Beer and now the departure area for Eurostar) and open yards immediately to the north of the station (at Kings Cross). The St Pancras coal yard is the most notable one next to the passenger station. The situation of such yard is an interesting piece of location geography being based on the delivery potential to the city of the horse and cart. '
