What’s the new Eurostar train called?
As a train company, we find ourselves using all kinds of technical names and terms. Here’s a quick guide to the names of our original and newer trains.
TMST: Our original trains. This stands for Trans-Manche Super Train.
e300: Our freshly rebuilt TMST trains. They can reach 300km/h, hence the name.
e320: Our brand new trains from Siemens, which can reach a maximum speed of 320 km/h. You may also hear them referred to as Velaro, which is the family of Siemens trains that our e320 is based on.
