Euston station, 1842

Is this picture from the Illustrated London News from August 1842 showing:
a) people attacking troops by Euston arch as they were on their way to board a train up North to suppress the general strike?
b) the usual mad rush down the ramp on platform 14 to catch the 17.40 Virgin Pendolino to Manchester on a Friday evening?
