Product Information

Channel Tunnel: 25 Years of Experience reveals how the Channel Tunnel operates on a day-to-day basis. It begins with an overview of the tunnel itself and associated infrastructure, including the vast yards and terminals constructed to serve tunnel traffic. It then moves on to examine the three principal traffic flows through the tunnel:

The book firstly looks at Eurotunnel and its Shuttle services, including both passenger and freight Shuttles. It includes details of the Shuttle locomotives and trains and describes how the terminals at either end of the tunnel operate. Shunting and battery locomotives used by Eurotunnel are described and this section also covers the tunnel fires and their impact on services.

Eurostar is the next group of services to be examined. The book describes how initial services on the core London–Paris/Brussels route have expanded over the years to serve several other destinations across France and, since 2018, Amsterdam in the Netherlands. It also looks at the ambitious plans to introduce North of London Eurostars in the UK and examines why the service ultimately failed. Unusual visitors to the UK are also covered in this section, including DB’s ICE and SNCF’s Postal TGV.
