London to Cologne on Eurostar and German ICE Trains

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…

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

Le immagini dalla cabina del treno sono state molto suggestive.

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

jorge duque October 27, 2014 at 1:36 pm

great vid and great music

eurodestination October 27, 2014 at 2:02 pm

@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.

@justanotherfreak2008 Thanks Mate!

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

@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.

Engraçado… andei esta semana no eurostar e nao tinha ninguem servindo

@YesIamEccentric Cologne to London via Brussels – begins 2015

laurentien00 October 27, 2014 at 6:38 pm

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

Manel Jero October 27, 2014 at 7:06 pm

You still have the Acela at NEC, which is not bad at all.

Tashi Dorjee October 27, 2014 at 7:39 pm

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

andrew ord October 27, 2014 at 8:36 pm

Why we don’t get the euro stars like now I think we should get them back!

TomSee October 27, 2014 at 9:02 pm

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 

NapierNimbus October 27, 2014 at 9:51 pm

thanks – perhaps was kph rather than mph?

Wandering1500 October 27, 2014 at 10:40 pm

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.

NapierNimbus October 27, 2014 at 10:47 pm

@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

Death783 October 27, 2014 at 11:08 pm

Still can’t believe this actually happened! Why’d they get rid of them?

Stephenb1973 October 28, 2014 at 12:04 am

Thanks Ian. Lots of happy memories of the Eurostar sets on the King’s Cross
to Leeds services.

bellminsterboy October 28, 2014 at 12:54 am

The TGV world record train achieved 574 KPH or 357MPH! I couldn’t believe
it at first either!

NapierNimbus October 28, 2014 at 1:31 am

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

Matt H B October 28, 2014 at 2:15 am

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

jeroen1237 October 28, 2014 at 3:07 am

@NapierNimbus and now these Eurostars are driving between Lille and Paris
against 300 km/h

Andrew Bird October 28, 2014 at 3:47 am

if i remember rightly there was a Eurostar at Glasgow central in 1997.

NapierNimbus October 28, 2014 at 4:38 am

@itfcsam thanks mate :)

NapierNimbus October 28, 2014 at 5:21 am

crumbs – many thanks for the info

itfcsam October 28, 2014 at 5:31 am

Awesome! Wish I’d seen them!

trainlover658 October 28, 2014 at 5:55 am

why was a eurostar used for GNER?

JudgeJoker October 28, 2014 at 6:07 am

Talk about prestigious. A 373 in GNER livery!! I think I’m in love…

Cazkumali October 28, 2014 at 7:01 am

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

rachaelmatt October 28, 2014 at 7:21 am

Those GNER euro’s look stunning! That livery looks great on them! Nice
video too!!! 😉

toady446 October 28, 2014 at 8:19 am

Ian, sweet as, as always, lol. How big is ur vid collections? Keep em
coming! Toady:D

JudgeJoker October 28, 2014 at 9:06 am

@Cazkumali Agreed. I would’ve loved to have seen them in person.

NapierNimbus October 28, 2014 at 10:03 am

@A0990Productions many thanks

NapierNimbus October 28, 2014 at 10:41 am

@Stephenb1973 cheers Steve yes the Eurostars are much missed

NapierNimbus October 28, 2014 at 11:32 am

@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

NapierNimbus October 28, 2014 at 11:45 am

@rachaelmatt totally agree – still think the GNER was quietly stated
elegance – many thanks for the comment :)
