The Queen officially opened a £900 million redevelopment of one of the UK's busiest stations today. Twenty-five years ago the Queen was at Reading to open the new station. Today she was back to tour the new station.
The station now has two new entrances, five additional platforms and new shops. The Queen officially named what is being dubbed a "factory on wheels" - a High Output Plant system (Hops) train, which will dramatically reduce the time it will take to electrify the Great Western rail route.
