CTRL Driver Training

Section 2

 

Driver training on Section 2 of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link commenced on 20th July 2007, and up to six trains were operating over the route each day by the end of the month. This number was expected to increase as the scheduled opening date of the line drew nearer.

 


 

On 16th August 2007 at 10:30, a Kent-bound Eurostar is seen cruising under the 9000 tonne bridge which carries

the North Kent Line over the CTRL tracks, at Ebbsfleet International. Currently, it appears that only the two lines

nearest the camera are being run over. David Glasspool
