Timeline: the Eurostar turns 25

Release time:2019-12-13 14:07:21

      Over the last quarter-century, Eurostar has expanded its range of destinations, broken several records and transited royals, footballers, celebrities and politicians to the other side of the British Channel. Here is a look at the iconic high-speed railway’s history as it marks 25 years since its inauguration.In October this year, masterclasses on food, arts and culture, cocktail mixing and wine tasting were made available on selected Eurostar trains. Passengers paid tribute to the service on social media in the days leading up to the anniversary on 14 November, when Eurostar announced plans to plant a tree for every train it operates from 2020. The equivalent of about 50 per day, it will mean 20,000 extra trees will be added to British, French, Dutch and Belgian woodlands – making sustainability a core feature Eurostar’s past, present and future services.

       In the future, Eurostar is looking to extend its high-speed network even further, allowing more destinations to benefit from its modern trains and champagne-filled celebrations (although perhaps without plastic cups, which have been banned from the service). Here, Future Rail takes a look at 

some of the service’s most important milestones.
