The gallery has been called Station Masters

An interactive digital art gallery has been launched by Channel Tunnel high-speed train company Eurostar.

In conjunction with the National Gallery, Eurostar is giving passengers a glimpse of 100 masterpieces.

Travellers using the departure lounge at St Pancras International station in London can view works by artists including Leonardo da Vinci and Monet.

People choose a painting at a touch-screen coffee table and the work is then shown on plasma screens.

The six screens are situated within the brick archways and because different paintings are chosen all the time it creates a constantly changing gallery.
