A Eurostar train completed the journey between Paris and London in barely two hours on September 4th. Travelling at 186mph on Britain’s first high-speed track, which runs for 68 miles from the mouth of the Channel Tunnel in Kent, the train arrived at London’s restored St Pancras station, carrying journalists and rail executives. The exact journey time was two hours, three minutes and 39 seconds. The new line, which shaves at least 20 minutes off the current journey between Paris and Waterloo station (two hours and 35 minutes), opens officially on November 14th.
