Six-foot chocolate Thomas delights travellers at Kings Cross Station

A giant, six-foot tall chocolate sculpture of Thomas surprised travellers at Kings Cross station over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Weighing in at 140kg and measuring seven feet in length, the chocolate Thomas sculpture too a total of 250 hours to build by three master chocolatiers.

A total of 100kg of chocolate was used to create the masterpiece – the equivalent of 50,000 chocolate buttons – a sculpture that was created to generate extensive PR coverage across BBC Breakfast, BBC London, Daily Telegraph, Mail Online and mass social media.

Chocolate craftsperson, Jen Lindsey-Clark, said: “To take Thomas from a little blue diecast engine to a large-scale chocolate structure was an exciting challenge.

“To sculpt this much-loved iconic brand in chocolate was one of the most fun projects we have been set and the great thing about my job is that if it goes wrong, you can just melt it down and start again.”
