Train Tunnel Ventilation Tests

Rare picture of a Eurostar test train inside one of the London Tunnels taken during tunnel ventilation static tests.

This trainset was delivered diesel hauled from CTRL-Section 1 at Singlewell weeks before the commencement of 25 kV OCS energisations and the start of Dynamic Testing at line speed on the 5th March 2007.
