Driver’s Eye View: Eurostar
BRUSSELS MIDI TO LONDON ST PANCRAS INTERNATIONAL
Unprecedented cooperation from Eurostar means you can now relive a high speed journey from the capital of Belgium to the capital of England via the Channel Tunnel. Riding with the driver at speeds of up to 300 kilometres an hour, or 186 miles an hour, is an exhilarating experience. Just click on the preview to see what we mean.
As well as calling at Lille Europe and Ebbsfleet International, we follow our class 373’s progress from the five control centres which are responsible for our train as it passes through Belgium, France, the Channel Tunnel and England.
There are two bonus features: 1. Temple Mills Depot, opened in time for the start of services into St Pancras.
2. Comings and goings at Brussels Midi. While our cameras were set up on the platform we filmed a dozen or more trains to show the diversity of traction and rolling stock.
Narration is in English or French (selected by you in the menu).
Filmed in 2009
* NB. Running times in the Channel Tunnel and London Tunnels have been reduced by approximately 50%.
