With the completion and opening of the United Kingdom's first dedicated high speed railway line - HS1 in 2007, international services have been running into London St Pancras International.
This is a driver's eye view from a class 373 Eurostar, the 0929 Brussels Midi to London St Pancras International calling at Lille Europe and Ebbsfleet International. Riding with the driver at speeds of up to 300 kilometres an hour, or 186 miles an hour, we see almost the entire route in virtual real time.
We also follow our train's progress through Belgium, France, the Channel Tunnel and England from the five rail control centres that are responsible for the high speed route.
There are two bonus features: Temple Mills Depot and comings and goings at Brussels Midi.
Narration is by Jonathan Kydd. There is also a French commentary (selected in the menu) by Yves Aubert.
