Prior to the December 1997 opening of the 71-KM (44-mile) Belgian high speed line between Brussels and the French border, Eurostar services were confined to standard domestic lines. Here, half set Nos. 3101 and 3102 are seen London-bound at Tournai, Belgium, 10 route KM east of the French border. © David Glasspool Collection
