Eurostar test train at Stratford

View of a Eurostar test train stabled in the new Stratford International train station at Stratford Box back in 2007.

This picture showing quite a wild environment at the time would be very interesting in today’s context with the presence of the new DLR station (opened 31 August 2011) as well as the Athlete Village in the heart of the Olympic Park ready for the London Games in 2012.
