Eurostar e320 – Glides along the tracks in Eurotunnel since 2015. The trains are 390.2 meters long and are designed to meet the technical specifications of European railways. The trains entered service in 1994 for the opening of the Channel Tunnel. The Eurostar e320 was built by Siemens in Germany, and the railway company ordered seven train sets.
The producers took their inspiration from the French train TGV. This transnational rail operator connects London with several important European cities and its trains reach speeds of up to 300 km / h. For example, a journey from London to Paris takes only two hours and sixteen minutes.
In 2009, the train crashed due to frost and snow, and over two thousand passengers were stuck in the tunnel. Snow has entered the ventilation system and there has been a short circuit in the electric motor system of the units.
