Faster Eurostar trains in £700million deal
October 7th, 2010 by elisa

Much speedier trips on Eurostar could be in the offing as the operator has announced plans to spend £700 million on the redesign of its fleet and in investment of ten new trains that could reduce London to Paris journey times.

The move is privately funded by the operator together with cash and bank financing. The project will start next year and will see rolling stock receive a makeover by Italian designers Pininfarina.

The new Eurostar e3202 trains will be ‘interoperable’ which means they can operate across the European high speed rail network and provide non-stop services between London and a number of European destinations.

The trains will have a fifth larger capacity than current Eurostar trains and be able to take 900 passengers plus luggage. The train will be able to travel up to 200mph which will reduce the journey time between London and Paris to around the two hours mark, the London to Amsterdam journey to under four hours, and London to Geneva to about five hours.
