I took a few days trip to Cologne last week by taking the Eurostar from St. Pancras International Station to Cologne via Brussels midi. It took less than 4-5…

  1. Thus was actually my journey to gamescon last year, I took the euro star
    and then the ICE train
    it was alot of fun, I definitely recommend people from London that want to
    go to gamescon should take this journey, I know it more expensive and
    faster, but it’s better than just sit on the plane looking out the sky for
    one hour where you can see not one not two but three different country on
    land and look at the scenery and also it’s more comfortable traveling by
    train than air

  2. Was there any hint of the tunnel in this video? I did not see any. I am
    assuming the train did not scoot across the waves above on the English
    Channel.

  3. @MeinDeutsch1 You step off the Eurostar and go over to platform 4 or 5 at
    Brussels Midi, which takes no more than 5 minutes. Double check the
    platform number with the Eurostar guard. Cheers.

  4. Hence the title states that the journey was made on Eurostar and ICE
    trains. Read the title and description before making comments.

  5. @eurodestination @eurodestination And let’s link all of Europe together. We
    need another tunnel underneath the North Sea linking Britain with the
    Netherlands (nice and easy when I visit my girlfriend) and Germany. We need
    a real efficient trans-European high-speed rail network.

  6. Siemens should have purchased the ICE-1 concept which was driven by a true
    locomotive pulling non-motorized coaches.

  7. Beautiful!I love european super fast train! It didn’t shown in this video
    changing train in Brussels.

  8. With Eurostar bidding for the ECML after British Rail (aka – East Coast)
    leave AGAIN! Hopefully they will make up for this by getting rid of class
    91’s and replacing them with the Eurostar fleet. (the new eurostar E-320
    stock will take over channel tunnel runs) and then the 91’s can work with
    class 90 stock on the GEML 

  9. I think the ECML definitely boast some of the country’s most handsome
    trains of this age. Just a shame the Eurostar’s don’t run on it anymore.

  10. @tpe18509 thanks very much mate – yes the ‘flying banana’ is in there – yes
    the eurostars were just used on the Kings Cross to Leeds services

  11. @toady446 thanks very much Toady – the video collection well from when I
    started to the present day is around 80 hours at the moment

  12. All still running on Victorian engineering. Amazing. Miss those White Rose
    services though, best looking liveries by far. 🙂

  13. @NapierNimbus Its a shame that the GNER Eurostars didn’t go as far as
    newcastle, edinburgh and glasgow

  14. @Death783 was was end of the lease – they were hired in originally to
    support the Kings Cross – Leeds services. I guess they were no longer
    required so lease not renewed and probably to avoid the on-going costs of
    maintaining ‘non-standard’ equipment against the fleet of HST and 225 sets

  15. @rachaelmatt totally agree – still think the GNER was quietly stated
    elegance – many thanks for the comment 🙂
