Eurostar services disrupted by weather

7 Jan 2010 by Mark Caswell

Eurostar says it will be running a restricted service “over the next few days” due to bad weather conditions across northern Europe. Passengers are also asked to check in 45 minutes before their departure.

Evening services are the most affected, with the last London-Paris train departing at 1902 (as opposed to 2004), and the last Paris-London service leaving at 1913 (as opposed to 2113).

Eurostar is recommending that passengers who do not need to travel cancel or postpone their trip. The operator also experienced disruption earlier today, when one of its trains broke down in the Channel Tunnel (see online news January 7).

It is not clear if the breakdown is related to last month’s disruption
when five Eurostar trains broke down as they left cold weather in
France and entered the warmth of the Euro Tunnel.
