Javelins between Eurostars

leave a comment »

In a Rail Engineer article, HS2 Ltd’s Andrew McNaughton explained how the Channel Tunnel Rail Link’s operating model depended on inefficient capacity utilisation.

[HS2 – The story so far, Nigel Wordsworth, The Rail Engineer, 9 Nov 2015]

[AMcN:] “You can smuggle Javelins between Eurostars because there aren’t many Eurostars, there are big gaps in the service and it’s a very short distance,” explained Andrew. “You’ve only got from Ebbsfleet to Ashford that they have to get along where they’re going slower than Eurostars. The route out to Ebbsfleet is only 230km/h so they’re basically running at the same speed as the Eurostars out through the London tunnels. The faster bit of the route is only between Ebbsfleet and Ashford.”
